PowerPoint presentation on the life and work of Cesar Chavez. Cesar Chavez was the charismatic leader and founder of the United Farm Workers Union who inspired a generation of Americans to finally do something about the horrible working conditions of the people who picked our crops. An excellent orator and union leader, Chavez inspired thousands of Americans and others to join in a boycott of grapes against companies which abused their workers. But most importantly, he inspired a generation of Latinos to stand up and be counted in the fight for justice for their people: "Make a solemn promise: to enjoy our rightful part of the riches of this land, to throw off the yoke of being considered as agricultural implements or slaves. We are free men and we demand justice."
