Honoring Cesar Chavez and his legacy: Guest Speaker Paul F. Chavez, President, Cesar Chavez Foundation
CCC is honored to have Mr. Paul Chavez visit the campus and serve as a guest speaker as part of the Cesar Chavez Day observance.
As a young boy in the early 1960s, Paul Chavez joined his seven brothers and sisters on weekends in Central Valley farm towns, handing out leaflets and helping his father, Cesar Chavez, organize the union that would become the United Farm Workers of America. Paul and his family endured the hardships and sacrifices of the five-year long Delano grape strike and boycott, and the struggles that followed.
He has spent his entire life with the farm worker movement. Paul was a personal assistant to his father and a union organizer and negotiator. He managed the UFW’s direct marketing operation and was the union’s lobbyist in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.
