Let’s take a moment to reflect on a man that defended the basic human rights of farm workers in the US. It is our collective responsibility to create a world where all workers are treated with dignity and freedom.
LIKE to celebrate one of the most inspirational labor activists of this generation.
happy Cesar Chavez day, the movement he helped found was deeply flawed & so was he as an individual. we need to acknowledge those mistakes & downright cruelties committed in the name of the movement, as well as all the good it did for (mainly) Mexican-American and Filipino-American laborer communities. and continue to actively build on what he helped organize, always with the aim of improving it and making it more inclusive. Prioritizing & helping our undocumented brothers & sisters, doing the work to eliminate anti-Blackness in our communities.
