César Chávez

La lucha por lo justo

Series: Latinos famosos

By Lila Guzmán and Rick Guzmán

Now in Spanish, read about César Chávez and his experiences as a migrant farmworker. He knew about poverty and pain, discrimination and despair. He grew up with one goal: to make a difference. Chávez organized a labor union—which became the United Farm Workers Union—to demand higher wages and better working and living conditions. A staunch believer in nonviolence, his strategies included strikes, boycotts, marches, and personal hunger strikes. By bringing national attention to the workers’ desperate plight, Chávez forced growers to improve their laborers’ lives.
