M.E.Ch.A. de Portland State and Las Mujeres held a demonstration honoring Cesar Chavez in Portland today. The event paid tribute to an individual who not only inspires Chicanos and Latinos, but all those who champion for workers’ rights and equality. The demonstration will also address ongoing campaigns in the state of Oregon. Cesar Chavez, former leader of the United FarmWorkers, fought for improving the working conditions of agricultural workers by leading national boycotts and marches across America.
