Growing up in the 80’s my parents worked for Almaden Vineyards. I would go with my mom to picket the local markets. As I grew older I realized who Cesar Chavez was and how he helped many farmworkers including my parents and grandparents. I would go to the local meetings, and I was Cesar Chavez’ little helper. I would help the farmworkers fill out paper work, pass out flyers. I was his little right hand, in Hollister, CA. My parents always took me to the marches around California, and I remember always marching side by side with Cesar. He would hold my hand and we would chant “Si Se Puede!!!” through out the streets. I felt empowered. I will always hold a special place in my heart for Mr. Chavez. He taught me to go after what I believe is right. To always do the right thing.
