SAN JOSE (KCBS)— Labor and religious leaders marched for immigration reform and held a public foot washing at the downtown federal building Thursday to celebrate legendary leader Cesar Chavez, marking the 20th anniversary of the popular Chavez march.
Students as young as five cheered, “Si se Puede,” the signature slogan of the labor leader.
San Jose City Councilman Xavier Campos wishes Chavez were alive today to help with immigration reform movement.
“His skills in negotiating and being able to bring both sides together were ahead of his time, (as was) the way he did it in a peaceful fashion. That is missed with Cesar’s passing,” said Campos.
