Labor Intensive: North Denver Marches in Honor of César Chávez

More than 100 people marched on César Chávez Day from Regis University to the eponymous park along Tennyson Street. Many of the participants represented local labor unions, including the Service Employees International Union, the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters and others. Aztec Dancers from Grupo Tlaloc participated in the march as well. The event has been hosted by the César E Chávez Peace and Justice Committee of Denver since 2002, which honors Chávez for his work in seeking fair labor conditions for migrant and farm workers.
