César E. Chávez National Holiday, the organization spearheading the national campaign to establish a national holiday and day of service and learning for farm worker leader César Chávez, invites everyone across the nation to organize and participate in action/events in your city that call for a national holiday for César Estrada Chávez on his birthday, March 31.

Over 250 organizations, leaders, elected officials, & celebrities; 53 members of Congress; and three Presidential candidates endorse the call for a César Chávez National Holiday. Ten states have established César Chávez Days (Arizona, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Rhode Island.)

César E. Chávez is one of the most important leaders of the 20th century. His legacy of workers rights, civil rights, environmental justice, equality for all, peace, non-violence, children and women’s rights, deserves national recognition. He inspired millions of people across the country of all races and nationalities to engage in social and economic justice for farm workers. His life work to empower the poor and disenfranchised is a model for all.

Organizations and labor unions in 33 cities have already agreed to hold César Chávez national holiday events on or near the date of César’s birthday March 31, 2008 including in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso, Tucson, Portland, Omaha, Philadelphia, Providence, Reno, Boise, Albuquerque, Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, Denver, Grand Rapids, Washington DC, Lubbock, Augusta (Maine), San Diego, Kansas City and yes, Salt Lake City, Utah; Charleston, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia.

Adelante, Inc., based in Toledo, Ohio, is hosting its annual César E. Chávez Humanitarian Award Banquet on march 27, 2008.

We must demonstrate that there is support for a César E. Chávez national holiday in as many cities as possible to convince national policy makers to act.
