A Call to Action
LULAC Council 4568, along with LULAC District 21 is asking all Fort Worth residents to join us in our campaign to recognize Cesar Chavez one of the most preeminent figures in the struggle for human rights in our country. His work in organizing farm workers in their struggle for livable wages and humane working conditions earned him posthumously the Medal of Freedom from President Bill Clinton. In addition, the U.S. Postal Service has dedicated a stamp in his image, a naval ship has been named in his honor as well as he was also a Navy veteran. Throughout the Southwest and beyond you will find parks, schools and streets named in his honor. Here in Fort Worth we have an Elementary school named in his honor as well as a county holiday, however no street. Many have tried for years to correct this stark omission of not having a street named in his honor, however it has escaped us. In this time of division in our country and some may say in our city let us unite to honor a humble man of peace whose mission was give voice to those that had none. We are asking that you join us in celebrating this exemplary Mexican American Hero by joining our noble mission. Please show your support by placing your name along with the 100s that already have in the spirit of Cesar Chavez and say to the city council of Fort Worth Si Se Puede, Yes, We Can, The Time is Now!
