Cesar Chavez (1927-1993) was a courageous, non-violent activist for migrant farm worker rights in the United States. With Dolores Huerta, he founded the United Farm Workers Union in 1962. By the 1970's, the UFW was recognized as the legal bargaining agent for over 50,000 migrant field workers in California and Florida. Watch this short video on Cesar Chavez' life.1
