National Park Could Be Named for Cesar Chavez

Oct 25, 2013 3:33 PM

The National Park Service is recommending that Congress create a new historic park to honor farm labor leader Cesar Chavez.

It would be made up of four sites in California ... and a former Phoenix church hall where the now-famous rallying cry "Si se puede" was popularized.

The recommendation comes after years of study.

As head of the United Farm Workers, the Arizona-born Chavez staged a massive grape boycott and countless field strikes, and forced growers to sign contracts providing better pay and working conditions.###
