Happy Cesar Chavez DayOn March 31, 2008, then Senator Barak Obama proposed Cesar Chavez Day be designated a national holiday every March 31 to commemorate his birthday. It became official in 2014 when President Obama proclaimed March 31 as Cesar Chavez Day.
The holiday is meant to highlight the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez and his record of fighting for the rights of migrant farmworkers in particular, and the Mexican American labor movement more broadly.
FIELD celebrates Cesar Chavez’s birthday this and every year with a special event, typically a breakfast fundraiser.
