San Francisco, California - Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued the following statement in honor of Cesar Chavez Day:

“Cesar Chavez empowered some of the most voiceless members of society – farmworkers, immigrants, and communities stricken by poverty – to come together in pursuit of fairness for working families and economic and social justice.  Today, as we honor his enduring legacy, let us rededicate ourselves to the fight against injustice in our immigration system, in the workplace, and wherever it exists in our society.”
