Cesar Chavez Day is a US federal commemorative holiday, begun by the government in 2014 and has been celebrated in our country since the year of 2000. This holiday is annually recognized on March 31st and it celebrates the birth and legacy of the civil rights and labor movement activist, Cesar Chavez. This holiday marked the first time a Latino Labor Leader was recognized and honored with its own public legal holiday. With dedication and selflessness, Cesar Chavez fought for farm worker’s rights, economic justice, and civil rights. It is a legacy that he will forever leave in our country and will serve as inspiration for generations to come.
This year in collaboration with the Multicultural Center, the Office of Outreach, and our UNT Organizations we will be having the inaugural Cesar Chavez Day of Service at the University of North Texas. This will occur on Monday March 30th, 2020 with different activities and events throughout the whole day. We look forward to seeing you all there.
