César E. Chávez Luncheon Celebration NR12149wr

Los Angeles: On Thursday, March 29, 2012, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in conjunction with community supporters will be hosting the third annual César E. Chávez Lunch Celebration.  This event will not only celebrate the life and triumphs of civil rights leader César E. Chávez, but also the struggles and sacrifices made towards social change, equality, and justice.

César E. Chávez was a Mexican American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who, along with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW).  Supporters say his work led to numerous improvements for union laborers. César E. Chávez’ birthday, March 31st, is celebrated in California as a state holiday, intended to promote service to the community in honor of Chávez’ life and accomplishments.   

The César E. Chávez’ legacy has remained alive, even after his death, on April 23, 1993. He is remembered as a hard working civil rights leader who fought for the fair treatment of farm workers, changing the lives of millions of people for the better.

We share this renewed partnership as a tribute to César E. Chávez’ commitment to social justice and respect for human dignity.  Just as César E. Chávez believed that “ordinary people can do extraordinary things”, law enforcement agencies and residents can inspire others to do the right thing in every city, town and neighborhood.  

For more information, please call LAPD Community Relations Section at 213-486-6000.
