This post was originally published in 2012 but we love the Social Justice Project and wanted to revisit some of these great stories.
This is how the story of Cesar Chavez begins (by Damian, elementary).
There are many famous people everywhere but I fought for the people.
First, I was born March 31, 1927 near a little town called Yuma. Next, I was a man who fought for freedom and justice for migrant farmers. I even got a day off for what I did. Finally I gave my life to stop poor treatment of people. I died in my sleep on March 23, 1993. I was a leader to migrant workers.
I was the astonishing Cesar Chavez.
