March 31 is Cesar Chavez Day. This state holiday was established “to promote service to the communities of California in honor of Chavez’s life and work.”

Cesar Chavez (1927-1993) was a Mexican-American labor organizer who used non-violent means to gain union recognition and contracts for farm workers. On March 31, we remember Cesar Chavez for the tireless effort he made to improve the lives of others. Planting a small seed of change, nurturing a movement of social justice, and harvesting hope for our communities and our world.

On Saturday from 9-11:30 a.m. the Newark Library will have a booth at Family Day at the Park. We will be giving out packets you can take home to plant seeds of hope in memory of Cesar Chavez. Stop by Newark Community Park to pick yours up and learn more about the programs and services the library offers. Hope to see you there!
