An effort to create a national historical park honoring farmworker rights pioneer César Chávez is underway in the U.S Senate and the House of Representatives. The César E. Chávez and the Farmworker Movement National Historical Park Act would build upon the national monument honoring Chavez in the San Joaquin Valley community of Keene and designate the 300-mile march route taken by farmworkers between Delano and Sacramento in 1966 as a national historic trail. TODAY: @RepRaulRuizMD @AlexPadilla4CA introduced a bill to commemorate the life and work of Cesar E.
