Paul Chavez Headshot

Paul F. Chavez, President, Cesar Chavez Foundation

We are having Paul Chavez come out to speak to our students as part of our Cesar Chavez Day observance.

As a young boy in the early 1960s, Paul Chavez joined his seven brothers and sisters on weekends in Central Valley farm towns, handing out leaflets and helping his father, Cesar Chavez, organize the union that would become the United Farm Workers of America. Paul and his family endured the hardships and sacrifices of the five-year long Delano grape strike and boycott, and the struggles that followed.

He has spent his entire life with the farm worker movement. Paul was a personal assistant to his father and a union organizer and negotiator. He managed the UFW’s direct marketing operation and was the union’s lobbyist in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.

Since 1991, Paul Chavez has led the Cesar Chavez Foundation, also founded in the ‘60s. He spearheaded the impressive growth of the Chavez foundation, dramatically impacting the lives of farm workers, Latinos and other poor working families across the Southwest.
