Some of the earlier reviews hinted at the promise of the site, and that promise remains unfulfilled. It is an education opportunity missed. There is very little material about either Cesar Chavez or about the farm labor movement (the Filipino role in developing this movement...More

We are now in a time when new monuments of this type will be few and far between. Sad. Thankfully, this monument is already in place. It is a tribute to a man with a vision and other common men in mind. The grounds and...More

This new monument is a memorial to the worker's rights activist who lived and worked here in this, the grounds of a former TB hospital. Gift shop and rest rooms are a nice touch.

An "orgullo Hispano" to me is Cesar Chavez. A great leader who stood up for the injustices of the Hispanic farm hands throughout the west, especially in California. He started the labor movement called La Causa. Peaceful protests and boycotts that saw him and his...More
