Ceaser Chavez and the struggle continues.

Seldom are we honored to have among us great people.

In our history, and that of working men and women ,Ceasar Chavez was a "Great" person.

His recognition in Flint brings honor to his life and recognition of the fight of organized labor to build the middle class in America.Chavez was born on March 31, 1927.

The son of...... migrant laborers, Chavez founded the National Farm Workers Association (NFWA) and later the United Farm Workers (UFW).

He led a five-year nonviolent boycott against California grape growers, protesting poor working conditions and the use of pesticides harmful to farm workers.

The boycott became a cause celebre and was finally successful in winning new rights for workers. In 1994 Chavez was posthumously awarded the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Cesar Chavez passed away on April 23, 1993.Our world is better because Cesar Chavez was in it.

He deserves to be honored and Flint is a fitting place.
The fight goes on.

I attended on Sat a Flint Meeting of the Michigan Democratic Caucus Hispanic Latino Caucus. My Video follows, in will be updated through the weekend.Several candidate spoke to the group.

It was an honor to attend their meeting.
We are one community within the Democratic Party.
But nobody gives you position, you have to take it!
