Cesar Chavez History Day Project One Mexican American farm worker dedicated his days to better the lives of his people, his name was Cesar Chavez. Horrendous treatment of farmworkers caused Chavez to take a stand for what he believed in, for no one should be treated poorly because of race or social class. During Chavez’s life, he organized peaceful protests, boycotts, as well as participated in a historic 36 day "Fast for life". Chavez not only changed the working rights for farm workers but subsequently gave dignity to the working class of America. The legacy that Cesar Chavez left behind was that he became the most important leader of the Latino people in the United States, and he founded the still standing United Farmworkers of America.
By creating the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) with the help of Dolores Huerta, Chavez made a lasting impression against his political enemies.

Labor union organizer and civil rights leader Cesar Chavez paid homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in an inspiring article regarding nonviolent resistance published in 1978 on the tenth anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination. Advocating militant nonviolence as means of achieving justice, Chavez offers a compelling stance as to why and how the farm workers’ movement can prosper. His gradual shift from hypothetical to practiced nonviolence, refutation of differing opinions, and desire to unite the common American people all contribute to a cogent exhortation on the necessity of nonviolent protest. Although it is inconspicuous, the slight tone shifts within the article add a great deal of strength to the overall persuasiveness of Chavez’s argument. Beginning with an analysis of Dr. King’s life, death, and effect
Film allows individuals’ stories and struggles to come alive to the rest of the world. The recent coverage of Luis Valdez receiving one of the White House’s 2015 National Medal of Arts demonstrates the growing advancement of Chicano culture in the United States.

Latino and Hispanic resistance to discrimination, violence and the United States’ push-pull immigration policy began to take shape as early as the 1920s.

In the Cherokee culture women and men are considered equal. The role of the Cherokee woman in the past is very different than the role of an American woman today. Men would cut down the trees and clear land so they could plant, they would use the wood to build news homes in fences around the villages, they may traps nets and other tools they hunted and fished and fix stuff when needed. Sometimes men move in with her wife 's family and sometimes he might build a home for his wife and family. In the Cherokee nation women where badass.
