Cesar Chavez was a man who fought for social justice. A couple of weeks ago I was invited by the KUNM Youth Radio project to attend an event in honor of Cesar Chavez.

On March 30, 2010, I interviewed Tara Ford, a lawyer at Pegasus Legal Services for Children about her views on social justice and why she chose to work with children. Tara has been working with children for years representing them in all walks of life. Her work expands from working with children that are in foster homes to children with disabilities.

What Cesar Chavez stands for is change and equality for the entire world. I would say that Cesar was a hero because he fought for the rights of himself and others.
