Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement in celebration of César Chávez Day:

“Today, we honor the legacy of César Chávez and recognize his outspoken and courageous leadership on behalf of workers’ rights. César Chávez organized the voices of the disenfranchised in California and elsewhere to launch a movement that led to safer, more just conditions for migrant farm laborers and their families. He has inspired generations of Latino leaders, labor organizers, activists, and elected officials working to advance the cause of equality. I will continue to stand up for all of our workers to ensure they are treated fairly and protected from discrimination in the workplace.”
