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 (by Javier, elementary).
I am Cesar Chavez. I was born in March 31, 1927. I grew up in Arizona. I fought for equal rights. I worked on a farm. I married Helen Foudo. I fought for slaves. I served two years in the navy. I had two brothers. I graduated from eighth grade. I became an organizer for the Community Service Organization. I worked in fields. I died on April 23, 1993. I was buried at the National Chaves Center.
