In a magazine article by Cesar Chavez on the 10th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior, Chavez discusses the advantages of nonviolent resistance versus violent resistance, arguing that “nonviolence is more powerful than violence.” Chavez successfully develops his argument for nonviolent resistance by utilizing the rhetorical strategies of repetition and allusion.

Cesar Chavez is the guy we should honor.
Cesar Chavez, a first-generation American, latino farm worker born in Yuma, Arizona, is a true American hero. At the age of 10, his family lost everything they owned due to the Great Depression. From the age of ten, Chavez migrated throughout the southwest working in the fields, where he was exposed to the hard work of a farm worker. Getting paid very low wages, while working in an extremely uncomfortable environment he got little sleep. Growing up in a hectic environment, he always had a true passion of helping others earn what they deserve.
In the text his main purpose was to persuade farm workers not to use violence to get their (farm workers) demands met, and boycott grape farms. In doing so the farmers would have to give in to demands of labor leaders. However, due to the struggles of others
This article gave us a rough idea about the public 's response to Cesar Chavez 's actions. It tried to report all sides of the conflict. The public had mixed views.

Was it his self sacrifices that he did, or the method he used to work with and for the people, or was it his determination.

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.

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.

Cesar E. Chavez was born March 31, 1927, and died April 23, 1993, and during his 66 years of life, he changed the lives of many (WHO? Many who? Mexican-Americans? Migrant farm laborers? Who?). Till this day, Cesar still is known as a strong Latino American civil rights revolutionary who was a leader in the American labor movement. He changed the world because of his strikes with many Latinos, causing the 9 dollar minimum wage for all jobs in the US and farmlands must provide bathrooms for the workers .

San Luis, Arizona is a town mostly built by agricultural workers and located on the southwest corner of Arizona. It is a town rounded for fields and which economy is based on agriculture. Since it is a farming town, Cesar Chavez, who fought for farm workers’ rights, was a big influence on what we have today. Thanks to his work, farm workers had received better salaries and working conditions. I strongly believe the Cesar Chavez’s legacy is being forgotten and it should be more honored because of his work, impact in the community and because there are not many places honoring him.
