Cesar Chavez Day Actions

Join farm workers in Cesar Chavez Day multi-city human billboard events for California Ag Labor Relations Voting Choice Act

On March 31, Cesar Chavez Day, farm workers will fan out to major California cities and across agricultural areas to hold human billboards to ask CA Gov. Newsom to sign the Agricultural Labor Relations Voting Choice Act (AB 2183-Stone). Will you join us?

This year, Governor Gavin Newsom refused to meet on Cesar Chavez Day with the UFW and farm worker leaders about this critical bill. The farm workers' response is to hold public events on 3/31 to make it clear to Gov. Newsom that a living legacy to Cesar is not just proclamations and holidays. It's making a difference for the people Cesar dedicated his life to.

The UFW Foundation supports the United Farm Workers’ new version of last year's Agricultural Labor Relations Voting Choice Act, which has earned even more legislative support. This vital bill aims to give more choices to farm workers when voting in their union elections without supervisors standing around intimidating them. This bill aims to give farm workers a fairer shot at having their voice heard. Without it, farm workers don't have a fighting chance.

Cesar Chavez Day isn't just a history lesson. The legacy of Cesar Chavez is alive, and we are calling on you to spend Cesar Chavez Day by standing with farm workers, calling for Gov Newsom's support. Join farm workers at one of their events throughout California or create your own event.

Events will be held in locations below, if you wish to attend please RSVP via the links below:
