Cesar Chavez

by William from Cherry Hill

My hero, Cesar Chavez, was a farm worker.

Cesar Chavez went on strike so no one could buy fruits and vegetables because the farm workers weren’t getting enough pay. Cesar Chavez lived in Yuma, Arizona. He was born March 27th 1927. He died April 23rd 1993. Cesar Chavez is important to me because if the farm workers went on strike, we might not get enough fruits and vegetables.
