The Shirazi Law Group invites you to participate in the “2013 Cesar Chavez Essay Contest” supported by Georgia Association of Latino Elected Official “GALEO”.
The goal of this contest is to increase awareness of the continual plight of farm workers and their contributions to America while honoring civil rights legend Cesar Chavez. Chavez’s leadership was critical to organizing farm workers and founding what is today known as the United Farm Workers union. He remains one of the foremost Latino leaders in American history. His birthday is recognized as a state holiday in California, Colorado and Texas, and GALEO supports the movement to create a national holiday in honor of Chavez.
