KXCI Commemorates César E. Chávez on Friday, March 30

Tune in to 91.3 KXCI Community Radio on Friday, March 30th from 7am to 6pm as we commemorate the life and legacy of labor and civil rights leader César Chávez.

We'll feature the voices of local educators, community leaders and activists who continue to be inspired by César E. Chávez. The historic struggles of César Chávez are still relevant today and many people in our border community are motivated by his work.

Arizona born César E. Chávez was a second generation American born in Yuma on March 31, 1927. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Mother Teresa, Chávez and Dolores Huerta organized farm workers throughout California. They fought for better working conditions, better wages and for just treatment of workers by striking, boycotting and marching for the United Farm Workers Union. César E. Chávez died peacefully in his sleep on April 23, 1993 in in San Luis, Arizona.

Information about local events can be found here.
