I am so pleased that President Obama will be coming to Keene, California next week to announce the establishment of the César E. Chávez National Monument. I commend the President for honoring the legacy of this American hero, who dedicated his life to promoting equal rights and justice for all Americans.
This new national monument will serve as a lasting tribute not only to César Chávez but to the people he fought for, the millions of hard-working men and women who have contributed so much to our country.
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
