Welcome to the Cesar E. Chavez National Holiday web site.

We are very happy to launch our web site on March 31, 2007, which would have been farm worker leader Cesar Chavez's 80th birthday. Today you will learn some basics about our organization and it's history. You will find out how to get involved in the effort to honor Cesar Chavez with a national holiday. You will also be able to share what is going on in your area to honor Cesar Chavez. This is only the beginning. As you visit our site in the future, you will learn more about the history and progress of the growing movement to honor Cesar Chavez.

Cesar E. Chavez was one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century. His courage, dedication, and historic accomplishments deserve national recognition. Tens of thousands of people won the first legal holiday for Cesar Chavez in California in the face of great obstacles. With your help we will win national recognition for Cesar Chavez. Every person can make a difference by getting involved today. Cesar Chavez taught us “¡Sí se puede!” (We can do it). With your help, Cesar Chavez's life will be celebrated across our country.

Visit us often to see what's new. We invite you to join us today. Don't forget to sign up for our e-mail alerts.

¡Sí se puede!

Evelina Alarcon, Executive Director
