STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Cesar Chavez Day

“The legacy of Cesar Chavez is alive in Los Angeles, and we see it in the values of our people — fighting for the safety and dignity of our immigrant brothers and sisters, showing up by the hundreds of thousands to stand for basic human rights, lending their voices to the struggle to end poverty and pay working men and women what they deserve. On this day set aside to honor a great leader and humanitarian , I remember all that he stood for and reaffirm the urgency of putting the principles of integrity, sacrifice, humility, and service at the center of everything we do.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
