AJR 33: Designates March 31 of each year as “Cesar Chavez Day.”

AJR 33 (Pintor Marin, Benson, Verrelli): Cesar Chavez was an admired leader in the labor and civil rights movements. He established the United Farm Workers of America, inspiring thousands of farm workers to unionize and negotiate contracts providing livable wages and working conditions. As a labor union that strongly believes in social justice, promotes human and civil rights, and fights to protect collective bargaining, NJEA supports the commemoration of Cesar Chavez on March 31 of each year.

NJEA Supports AJR 33 and encourages you to do the same.
