#CesarChavez #Resist Marches

Many thousands of farm workers will lead the resistance to Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant policies by staging marches organized by the United Farm Workers around Cesar Chavez’s March 31 birthday in at least 10 rural communities—most of which backed Trump—across CA, TX and WA.

Rural and agricultural counties voted heavily for Trump during last year’s presidential election. But field laborers whose toil supplies fresh fruits and vegetables to America and much of the world will be marching against the Trump immigration agenda carrying “We feed you” banners and signs in California’s Central Valley and Central Coast, South Texas’ Rio Grande Valley and Washington state’s Yakima Valley.

Farm workers who are undocumented or have family members without legal papers express genuine fear over Trump plans to target all undocumented immigrants for deportation. But thousands of them will nevertheless mobilize to resist threats from the new administration and stand up for themselves while marking what would have been the iconic farm labor and civil rights leader’s 90th birthday.

Won't you join them?
