One of the greatest challenges of any diverse community is finding
ways of building a stronger community together. In the last 10 years, the City
of Lynwood, its elected officials, school district, businesses, law enforcement
agencies and residents have turned Lynwood into a forward-thinking,
productive, livable, resilient and united community. It works together, it
plays together, it overcomes challenges together, and it understands that to
be a successful community, people have to be united. After all, like the great
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar once said, “Five guys on the court working together can
achieve more than five talented individuals who come and go as individuals.”
Doing things together is what makes Lynwood great. From the City’s
Weight Loss Challenge, to the City’s collaboration with Sen. Ricardo Lara
for his very successful Black History Month Gospel Brunch, to the City’s
wonderful Celebration of Children with Special Needs, there’s no doubt that
not only does this City know how to celebrate people and cultures together,
but it also knows how to lose weight together. It is all proof that it also takes
a village to raise a community. With strong leaders at the helm, the City has
also built strong relationships with its Sheriff’s and Fire departments, with
local legislators and not to mention with its school district.
Some people praise individuals for the unity, some people praise
social media’s ability to educate the masses on how government works, and
while both are deserving of the credit for bringing this community together,
it’s the people who make things happen. After all, one person cannot do
it alone. The City’s recent Community Cleanups are also proof that it takes
a village to clean. One doesn’t even have to live in the area of the cleanup,
it just feels good to clean one’s City together. The next effort takes place on
March 28 at Lynwood City Park. Few communities do what Lynwood does
together. Like the late Cesar Chavez once said, “We cannot seek achievement
for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community
… Our ambitions must … include the aspirations and needs of others, for
their sakes and for our own.” With celebrations for Chavez (March 31) and
the late Assemblyman Marco Antonio Firebaugh (April 17) set for later this
month, there is no doubt that both community leaders would be proud of
Lynwood for not just learning how to work together, but for wanting to leave
this community better than it was found.

FEBRUARY’S KID MAYOR AIMS TO BE POTUS ONE DAY
LA ALCALDE NIÑA DE FEBRERO DESEA SER PRESIDENTE ALGÚN DÍA
Anastacia Nwosu, a sixth grader
at Helen Keller Elementary School, who
was selected to serve as the City of
Lynwood’s second Kid Mayor of the year
for the month of February, said that she
one day hopes to be President of the
United States.
The Kid Mayor Program gives
12 superstar Lynwood Unified School
District students the opportunity to serve as the Junior Mayor of the City for an
entire month. One Kid Mayor is nominated every month by each of the school
district’s 12 elementary school’s teachers.
Kid Mayor Nwosu was selected from more than 200 4th through 6th
graders at Helen Keller Elementary School. After receiving her Proclamation and
badge at February’s first City Council meeting, the young Nwosu was asked by
the Mayor to please share with the audience some of her future plans. “I plan to
be the U.S. President one day, and this will only help me get there,” she said.
The City of Lynwood can’t wait for that day to come, said the Mayor.
The Mayor and City Council are hoping that this program will help inspire
students in the district to work harder and pursue higher aspirations.
Kid Mayor Nwosu was a natural sitting at the dais during the City
Council Meeting. She ran the first 20 minutes of the City Council meeting
smoothly and articulately. With proud parents walking behind her as she exited
the meeting, Kid Mayor Nwosu said the first thing she was going to do as Kid
Mayor was to go tell her friends at school the next day about her new job.
Aside from receiving a Proclamation, a name badge and nameplate
for his/her desk at school, each Kid Mayor will receive a $400 scholarship for
college. Each Kid Mayor will also have the opportunity to attend all of the City’s
functions with the current Mayor and City Council.

Uno de los mayores desafíos para cualquier comunidad diversa es
encontrar maneras de trabajar y aprender como construir una comunidad
más sólida. En los últimos 10 años, la Ciudad de Lynwood, sus oficiales
electos, el distrito escolar, los negocios, las agencias de cumplimiento de la
ley y los residentes han convertido a Lynwood en una comunidad progresista,
productiva, habitable y unida. Trabaja en equipo, juega en equipo, resuelve
los problemas en equipo, y comprenden que para ser una comunidad exitosa,
la gente tiene que estar unidas. Después de todo, como Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
una vez dijo: “Cinco personas que trabajan ... en equipo pueden llegar a más
que cinco individuos talentosos que vienen y van como individuos”.
El trabajo en equipo es lo que hace que Lynwood sea una gran
comunidad. Desde el Desafío de Pérdida de Peso, hasta nuestra colaboración
con el Senador Ricardo Lara para el almuerzo para predicar el evangelio
altamente elogiado en el Mes de la Historia afroamericana, hasta la
maravillosa Celebración de Niños con Necesidades Especiales, no hay
duda alguna de que la Ciudad no solo sabe cómo honrar a las personas y
culturas juntos, sino que también sabe cómo perder peso juntos. Todo esto
es una prueba de que también se necesita un pueblo para desarrollar una
comunidad. Con fuertes líderes electos al timón, la Ciudad de Lynwood
también ha desarrollado relaciones sólidas y positivas con los departamentos
del Sheriff y de bomberos, con legisladores locales y, no nos olvidemos, con
el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Lynwood.
Algunas personas elogian a individuos por la unidad, algunas
personas elogian la habilidad de los medios sociales para educar a las masas
sobre cómo funciona el gobierno, y si bien ambas merecen el crédito por unir
esta comunidad, son las personas trabajan do juntos que hacen que las cosas
sean posibles. Después de todo, una sola persona no puede hacerlo solo. Las
recientes Limpiezas Comunitarias de la Ciudad son prueba que se requiere de
todo un pueblo para limpiar. Uno no tiene que vivir en la área de la limpieza,
si no que se siente bién limpiar la Ciudad juntos. La próxima Limpieza
Comunitaria se llevará a cabo el 28 de marzo en el parque mayor de Lynwood.
Como Cesar Chávez dijo, “No podemos buscar logro para nosotros mismos y
olvidarnos del progreso y la prosperidad de nuestra comunidad…. Nuestras
ambiciones deben…. incluir las aspiraciones y necesidades de los demás,
por su bien y por el nuestro.” Con celebraciones posteriores para Chávez (el
31 de marzo) y para el asambleísta Marco Antonio Firebaugh (el 17 de abril),
no cabe duda que los dos líderes de nuestros pueblos estuvieran orgullosos
de Lynwood no solo por aprender a trabajar juntos, pero por querer dejar esta
comunidad mejor de lo que se encontró.
Anastacia Nwosu, una niña de sexto grado de la Helen Keller
Elementary School, que fue elegida como la segunda Alcalde Niña de la
Ciudad de Lynwood del año para el mes de febrero, dijo que algún día
espera ser Presidente de Estados Unidos.
El Programa de Alcalde Niño brinda a 12 estudiantes estrellas
del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Lynwood la oportunidad de actuar como
Alcaldes Junior de la Ciudad por un mes completo. Cada mes, los maestros
de cada una de las 12 escuelas primarias del distrito escolar nominan a un
Alcalde Niño.
La Alcalde Niña Nwosu fue seleccionada entre más de 200
candidatos de 4to y 6to grado de la Helen Keller Elementary School.
Después de recibir su Proclamación y credencial en la primera Asamblea
del Municipio de febrero, el Alcalde le pidió a la pequeña Nwosu que por
favor compartiera con la audiencia algunos de sus planes futuros. “Planeo
ser la Presidente de Estados Unidos algún día, y esto me ayudará a lograrlo”,
dijo.
La Ciudad de Lynwood espera ansiosamente que llegue ese
día, dijo el Alcalde. El Alcalde y el Municipio esperan que este programa
ayude a inspirar a los estudiantes en el distrito a trabajar más duro y tener
aspiraciones más altas.
La Alcalde Niña Nwosu tuvo una actitud natural en la tarima
durante la Asamblea del Municipio. Presidió los primeros 20 minutos de
la asamblea del Municipio con fluidez y de manera articulada. Con padres
orgullosos que caminaron detrás de ella cuando se retiraba de la asamblea,
la Alcalde Niña Nwosu dijo que lo que primero hará al día siguiente como
Alcalde Niña será contarles a sus amigos en la escuela sobre su nuevo
trabajo.
Además de recibir una Proclamación, una credencial con su
nombre y una placa con su nombre para su pupitre en la escuela, cada
Alcalde Niño o Niña recibirá una beca de $400 para la universidad. Cada
Alcalde Niño también tendrá la oportunidad de asistir a todas las funciones
de la Ciudad con el Alcalde actual y el Municipio.

NOTICE
¿Quién se iba a imaginar que un simple globo de
THE
POWER OF MYLAR BALLOONS mylar podría
causar tanto estrago cuando aterriza en el lugar
EL PODER DE LOS GLOBOS DE MYLAR
Who knew that a simple Mylar balloon could cause
so much havoc when it lands in the wrong place? Southern
California Edison knows, and after a huge black-out that took
place on Feb. 16, 2015, so do close to 1,000 homeowners
who live off of Atlantic Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard.
Mylar balloons are to blame for a recent power
outage that blew out a transformer in the area of Atlantic
Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard that eventually
took out 12 other transformers.
It was like a domino effect, said an Edison
spokesperson, and it is why a large area of homes were
affected. Residents were most likely affected by the outage
until probably later that day, said the spokesperson. “When
a Mylar balloon gets tangled in an Edison wire, it can cause
a short circuit in the system, blowout a transformer or trip
a breaker. Even a paper kite can do that. It’s amazing how
something so simple can cause such a huge problem, but
we see it all the time. We recommend residents to call us
immediately when they see Mylar balloons tangled in wires
because we can try to get out there and remove them before
they trigger an outage.”
A power outage can also occur when a vehicle hits
an Edison pole. An accident like this can blowout a circuit
and suddenly a large area of homes can be without power for
hours. A power outage can also affect nearby water pumps
that need electricity to operate. When this happens residents
can lose power and water at the same time. And let’s not
forget that storms and earthquakes can cause sudden power
outages. Power is reliable, but sometimes things happen, so
it’s important to be prepared. From generators, to batteries
and flashlights and oil lanterns, residents are encouraged
to keep an emergency supply of all of the above in case of
an emergency, or when the next set of Mylar balloons get
tangled up in Edison wires.
People can call Edison at (800) 655-4555 to report
entangled Mylar balloons or if they see wires down.
NOTICE
equivocado? Southern California Edison sabe, y después de
un enorme corte de luz que sucedió el 16 de febrero de 2015,
también lo saben cerca de 1,000 de propietarios que viven cerca
de Atlantic Avenue y Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Los globos de mylar son responsables de un corte de
energía reciente que quemó un transformador en el área de
Atlantic Avenue y Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard que finalmente
rompió otros 12 transformadores.
Fue como el efecto dominó, dijo un vocero de Edison,
y es la razón por la que una gran cantidad de hogares fueron
afectados. Los residentes se vieron afectados por el corte hasta
más tarde ese día, dijo el vocero. “Cuando un globo de mylar
queda atrapado en un cable de Edison, puede causar un corto
circuito en el sistema, quemar un transformador o hacer saltar
un fusil eléctrico. Incluso un barrilete de papel puede provocar
esto. Es increíble cómo algo tan simple puede causar un problema
tan grande, pero lo vemos todo el tiempo. Recomendamos a los
residentes que se comuniquen con nosotros inmediatamente si
ven globos de mylar atrapados en cables, así podemos tratar de
quitarlos antes de que ocasionen un corte de energía.”
También puede ocurrir un corte de energía cuando un
vehículo choca contra un poste de Edison. Un accidente como
este puede quemar un circuito y, de repente, una gran cantidad
de hogares pueden quedarse sin luz por horas. Un corte de
energía también puede afectar las bombas de agua cercanas que
necesitan electricidad para funcionar. Cuando esto sucede, los
residentes pueden quedarse sin luz y sin agua al mismo tiempo. Y
no nos olvidemos que las tormentas y terremotos pueden causar
cortes repentinos de energía. La energía es confiable, pero a veces
suceden cosas, por lo que es importante estar preparados. Se
recomienda a los residentes tener una provisión ante emergencias,
desde generadores, baterías y linternas y lámparas de aceite, en
caso de emergencia o si más globos de mylar quedan atrapados
en los cables de Edison.
Se puede contactar a Edison al (800) 655-4555 para
notificar sobre globos de mylar atrapados o si hay cables
comprometidos.
THE VILLAGE PROJECT
Leaders from the Lynwood Unified School District, the
City of Lynwood, business and nonprofit sectors took part in a
local action summit to kick off the district’s The Village Project,
a program aimed at coordinating local resources to break down
barriers to success for young men and women of color.
The vision of Lynwood Unified Board of Education Vice
President Gary Hardie Jr. in partnership with the Lynwood City
Council, The Village Project responds to President Barack Obama’s
“My Brother’s Keeper” Initiative - a call to action to communities
across the country to expand opportunities for youth of color.
The Village Project was kicked off on Feb. 25, 2015 with a press
conference and roundtable as more than 100 Lynwood teens
participated in the district’s second annual Black Teen Summit.
The event, which was coordinated by the Lynwood Unified District
African American Advisory Parent Council, included motivational
speakers, job interviewing techniques, college-going tips and
resources.
PAGE 2 | CITY OF LYNWOOD | NEWSLETTER | MARCH 2015 | ISSUE 3 | VOL. 9
School Board Vice President Hardie said the idea for
The Village Project was born after he attended a meeting of the
Congressional Black Caucus, where community leaders were
challenged to start programs at the local level that mirrored
President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative. “The fact that so
many people came out to our roundtable was a reaffirmation that a
project like this is needed in our community,” said Hardie. “I believe
our kick-off served its purpose; it opened up a lot of different
conversations about the needs of our youth. I call it The Village
Project because it truly does take a village to raise a child. Every
child needs mentors or role models in his or her life. The Village
Project is going to bring that idea to life. I had several mentors
growing up – and it took a piece of all of them to form the person
that I am today.”
While it’s still in its early stages, for more information
about The Village Project and its mentorship program in Lynwood,
please email Hardie at [email protected]

NOTICE
Barking is one of many forms of vocal communication for
man’s best friend, the family dog. People are often pleased that
their dogs bark because it alerts them to the approach of people
or it tells them there’s something that the dog wants or needs.
However, sometimes a dog’s barking can be excessive. Because
barking serves a variety of functions, you must identify its cause
and your dog’s motivation for barking before you can treat a
barking problem.
Why Dogs Bark
The first step in obtaining peace and quiet is to realize that most
dogs bark for specific reasons. Some reasons include:
•
¡Ya es casi la hora del Receso de Primavera

MAN’S BEST FRIEND
•
•
•
•
• Solitary Confinement - A dog left
alone or confined for long periods
without supervision is likely to
bark because he feels anxious or
sad and is afraid the owner may
not return.
• Inactivity - Lack of exercise can easily
result in a dog that has pent-up
energy and barks out of frustration.
A well-exercised, happy dog is
more likely to sleep when you’re not there.
Frustration-Induced Barking - Some dogs bark excessively
when they’re placed in a frustrating situation.
Territorial Barking - Dogs can bark excessively in response to
people, dogs or other animals approaching their territories.
Alarm Barking - Alarm barking is different than territorial
barking in that a dog might alarm bark at sights or sounds
in any location at all, not just when he’s defending familiar
areas, such as your house, yard or car.
Compulsive Barking - Some dogs bark excessively in a
repetitive way, like a broken record. A dog that is compulsively
barking might run back and forth along the fence in his yard
or pace in his home.
Socially Facilitated Barking - Some dogs bark excessively
only when they hear other dogs barking.
FEATURE
LET’S ALL RECYCLE:
RECYCLING REQUIREMENTS FOR BUSINESSES
AND APARTMENT BUILDINGS
Whether it’s through the garbage bins provided to
every resident, at schools or individually, the City of Lynwood
encourages everyone to recycle throughout the year. With Earth
Day around the corner, the City of Lynwood wants to remind
its residents, business owners and schools of the benefits of
recycling products that could be turned into new products
instead of sending them to landfills and incinerators.
Recycling conserves natural resources such as timber,
water and minerals, and prevents pollution by reducing the
need to collect new raw materials. Recycling also saves energy,
reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global
climate change, and helps sustain the environment for future
generations.
While it is still an option for the general public to recycle,
the City’s trash provider, Waste Resources, Inc., collects and
processes all of the recyclables that are put into their trash bins.
State law, Assembly Bill 341, however, states that businesses and
apartment buildings are REQUIRED to recycle.
NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR BUSINESSES AND APARTMENTS
Why recycle?
•
•
•
All businesses that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste
weekly must recycle.
State law now requires that apartment communities/multifamily housing with 5 or more units recycle.
Recycling helps conserve resources and extends the life of
California landfills.
How to get started:
It’s easy to recycle at your business and apartment building.
The City changed solid waste and recycling collection services in
November 2013. This new program enables businesses and multifamily dwellings to comply with AB 341 requirements for waste
diversion. Businesses and apartment buildings can now place
all trash and recyclable materials into the orange “mixed waste”
bins provided by Waste Resources, Inc. (WRI). Recyclables will be
separated from trash for businesses and apartments at a Material
Recovery Facility (MRF), so businesses and apartments will no
longer need to place their recyclables in a separate container.
How to Stop the Barking
So, what can you do about your dog’s barking? Here are some
tips:
•
Let’s get physical. Dogs
that spend most of their time in the
backyard or in the house probably
need an exercise outlet. Take your
dog for a long walk, or head to the
park for a change of scenery and a
game of fetch.
• Love the one you’re with. Bring your dog into the house
when you’re home. It’s important that he feels he’s part of
the family and is loved.
• You’ve got a friend in me. Dogs are social creatures. Take
your dog to the same park daily or weekly and let him make
doggy friends. Dogs romping around together tire easily and
sleep soundly.
Where to go for more information?
To find out about recycling opportunities call WRI at (888) 4677600. For additional general information about recycling and waste
reduction, visit CalRecycle’s website at www.calrecyle.ca.gov.

SENATOR RICARDO LARA’S 4TH ANNUAL GOSPEL BRUNCH
H
Hundreds of people ‘turned up’ for Senator Ricardo
Lara’s 4th Annual Gospel Brunch on Feb. 7, 2015.

included representatives from the County Board
of Supervisors Office. The annual dinner is held in
T
hanks to the generous contributions of an array of
community partners and donors, 300 children with
special needs were treated to a special day designed just
for them. With circus decorations, treats and fun galore, the
children, who were accompanied by their parent/guardian,
enjoyed performances by the Firebaugh High School Drill
Team and Jazz Ensemble, Lynwood High School Dance
Group, by the Agape Musical Institute, and by Lupita Infante,
granddaughter to the late Pedro Infante. With the generous
support of both the Los Angeles County Sheriff ’s Century
Station and Fire departments, along with the contributions
made by more than 40 community partners, the children were
treated to a delicious lunch, awesome raffle prizes, dancing,
and to an armful of toys just for them. With the support from
Lynwood’s Hometown Buffet, Subway and McDonalds, the
children also enjoyed the company of the Bumble Bee, the
Subway Man and by Ronald McDonald himself. Children and
their families were also treated to a Mini Resource Fair where
16 community resource centers happily volunteered their
Sunday for the joyous occasion. While the event is a City of
Lynwood event, it is organized by a group of volunteers and
wouldn’t be possible without its community partners.

honor of all of the individuals who work in conjunction with
the Sheriff ’s Department’s Century Station. “This event is
for all of the people who do a lot of the behind the scenes
work in community policing, for their efforts in making and
keeping our communities safe,” said Lt. Todd Deeds. “This is
our way of thanking them for everything that they do.” The
Public Safety Awards Dinner was held on Feb. 12, 2015 for
approximately 250 people from the Century Station’s patrol
areas.
The Lynwood Unified School District’s comprehensive high
school, Marco Antonio Firebaugh High, this month celebrates its 10
years of existence as a public high school. Named in honor of the late
California State Assemblyman Marco Antonio Firebaugh, an advocate
for those of few means, the school district’s newest high school is
the third public school in the state of California to be named after
him for his advocacy for working families. Instrumental in bringing
in funds for LUSD to build the high school where it sits today, the
Assemblyman celebrated the inauguration of the campus a few
months before he lost his battle to influenza and liver failure. Every
year LUSD and the school, along with its 2,000 students, celebrate
the life and legacy of Firebaugh and his championing of AB540
allowing undocumented students who meet certain requirements
to pay in-state tuitions. He may be gone but his legacy and work
live on in every student who passes through Firebaugh High School
in Lynwood. The 10 Year Anniversary Celebration of the school’s
inauguration takes place on April 17, 2015 from 5 to 7 p.m. at
Firebaugh High School, 5246 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Lynwood,
CA 90262.

LYNWOOD CITY PARK
GETS FACELIFT
MEJORANDO
LYNWOOD CITY PARK
The City of Lynwood’s biggest park has been getting
a major facelift. Thanks to a $250,000 grant from the Los
Angeles County Regional Park & Open Space District, the City’s
Recreation and Community Services Department is extremely
excited to announce three new improvements taking place at
Lynwood City Park.
Thanks to this grant, the park’s three baseball fields
were resurfaced. The fields had not been resurfaced in more
than five years and time and weather elements had taken a toll
on them. But with this grant, all three fields were resurfaced
last month with a special infield-mix for more true bounces and
consistent good footing.
The tennis courts on the north end of the park also got
a facelift. The grant specified that $50,000 be used to repaint
and resurface all of the playing areas, including the installation
of new nets. Benches, trash cans and signage will be replaced
as well.
The park’s outdoor basketball courts were also
replaced. The grant calls for the replacement of the gates,
the backboards, the rims and for the addition of benches and
courtside seating.
The City of Lynwood has two major parks and several
pocket parks scattered throughout the City’s 4.9 square miles.
All of the parks feature different play and exercise amenities
that are available to the public. This fall, the City of Lynwood is
scheduled to open the City’s first Linear Walking Park, located
along Fernwood Avenue. Stay tuned for more park news in the
coming months.
El parque más grande de la Ciudad de Lynwood está
recibiendo importante renovaciones. Gracias a un subsidio de
$250,000 del Distrito de Parques Regionales y Espacio Públicos del
Condado de Los Ángeles, el Departamento de Recreación y Servicios
Comunitarios de la Ciudad tiene el gran agrado de anunciar nuevas
renovaciones que se están llevando a cabo en el Lynwood City Park.
Gracias a este subsidio, se repararon tres campos de béisbol
del parque. Los campos no se habían mejorado en más de cinco años,
y el tiempo y el clima los había afectado. Pero con este subsidio, se
mejoraron los tres campos el mes pasado con una mezcla especial
para campos para mejores rebotes y puntos de apoyo consistentes.
También se realizaron renovaciones en las canchas de
tenis del lado norte del parque. El subsidio especifica que se deben
usar $50,000 para repintar y arreglar todas las áreas de juegos,
incluyendo la instalación de nuevas redes. También se reemplazarán
los bancos, cestos de basura y letreros de señalización.
También se reemplazaron las canchas de básquetbol al aire
libre del parque. El subsidio ayudará a reemplazar las puertas, los
tableros, los aros y agregar bancos y asientos junto a la cancha.
La Ciudad de Lynwood posee dos parques principales y
varios parques pequeños a los largo de las 4.9 millas cuadradas de la
Ciudad. Todos los parques cuentan con diferentes instalaciones para
la recreación y ejercicio disponibles al público. Este otoño, la Ciudad
de Lynwood tiene programado inaugurar el primer Linear Walking
Park de la Ciudad, ubicado a lo largo de la Fernwood Avenue. Espere
más noticias sobre parques en los próximos meses.

say… “There’s nothing to do” or “I’m

curiosity! If you have inquisitive children

Women’s History Month
presents the opportunity to learn
about the important contributions
of women and girls to our society.
The United States has observed it
annually throughout the month of
March since 1987. The 2015 theme,
“Weaving the Stories of Women’s
Lives” honors stories of women’s
lives, and the choices they made,
encourages girls and young women
to think larger and bolder, and give
a fuller understanding of the female experience.
Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a
weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history
and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in
1978.
A few years later, the idea had caught on within communities,
school districts and organizations across the country. In 1980,
President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation
declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History
Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a
resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later,
the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned
Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.
International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the
economic, political and social achievements of women, took place
for the first time on March 8, 1911. Many countries around the
world celebrate the holiday with demonstrations, educational
initiatives and customs such as presenting women with gifts
and flowers. The United Nations has sponsored International
Women’s Day since 1975. When adopting its resolution on the
observance of International Women’s Day, the United Nations
General Assembly cited the following reasons: “To recognize
the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full
enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require
the active participation, equality and development of women;
and to recognize and celebrate the many ways that women’s
history has become woven into the fabric of our national story.”

Mexican-American Cesar Chavez
(1927-1993) was a prominent
union leader and labor organizer.
Hardened by his early experience as a
migrant worker, Chavez founded the
National Farm Workers Association
in 1962. His union joined with the
Agricultural Workers Organizing
Committee in its first strike against
grape growers in California, and the
two organizations later merged to
become the United Farm Workers.
Stressing nonviolent methods,
Chavez drew attention for his causes
HISTORY
CESAR CHAVEZ via boycotts, marches and hunger
strikes. Despite conflicts with the
Teamsters union and legal barriers, he was able to secure raises and
improve conditions for farm workers in California, Texas, Arizona and
Florida.
His introduction to labor organizing began in 1952 when
he met Father Donald McDonnell, an activist Catholic priest, and
Fred Ross, an organizer with the Community Service Organization,
who recruited Chavez to join his group. Within a few years Chavez
had become national director, but in 1962 resigned to devote his
energies to organizing a union for farm workers.
A major turning point came in September 1965 when the
fledgling Farm Workers Association voted to join a strike that had
been initiated by Filipino farm workers in Delano’s grape fields.
Within months Chavez and his union became nationally
known. Chavez’s drawing on the imagery of the civil rights movement,
his insistence on nonviolence, his reliance on volunteers from urban
universities and religious organizations, his alliance with organized
labor, and his use of mass mobilizing techniques such as a famous
march on Sacramento in 1966 brought the grape strike and consumer
boycott into the national consciousness. The boycott in particular
was responsible for pressuring the growers to recognize the United
Farm Workers (UFW; renamed after the union joined the afl-cio). The
first contracts were signed in 1966, but were followed by more years
of strife. In 1968 Chavez went on a fast for 25 days to protest the
increasing advocacy of violence within the union. Victory came finally
on July 29, 1970, when 26 Delano growers formally signed contracts
recognizing the UFW and bringing peace to the vineyards.
That same year the Teamsters’ union challenged the UFW in
the Salinas valley by signing sweetheart contracts with the growers
there. Finally in 1973, the Teamsters signed a jurisdictional agreement
that temporarily ended the disputes.
Believing that the only permanent solution to the problems
of farm workers lay in legislation, Chavez supported the passage of
California’s Agricultural Labor Relations Act (the first of its kind in the
nation), which promised to end the cycle of misery and exploitation
and ensure justice for the workers. These promises, however, proved to
be short-lived as grower opposition and a series of hostile governors
undercut the effectiveness of the law.
For thirty years Chavez tenaciously devoted himself to the
problems of some of the poorest workers in America. The movement
he inspired succeeded in raising salaries and improving working
conditions for farm workers in California, Texas, Arizona, and Florida.
