“Si, Se Puede,” “Yes, It Can Be Done.” Celebrating The Life Of Cesar Chavez!

Today Denver celebrates the life of Cesar Chavez. A civil rights activist who worked for workers’ rights, better wages, and immigration reform, his legacy continues as people from across the city and state take a day to recognize and celebrate his work.

In Denver and Colorado, we celebrate his life with a day committed to service. I personally want to thank former City Councilwoman Ramona Martinez who led the way in declaring the last Monday in March as Cesar Chavez Day!

The Fight is Not Over

Today, we face many of the same issues Cesar Chavez fought so hard to eliminate. I am running for Denver City Council so that, together, we can find solutions to the daily issues we face in District 7.

  • Affordable Housing for working families, Millennials, and retirees. A diverse population ensures we have a strong neighborhoods and a stable economic base.
  • Every neighborhood matters. While some neighborhoods are thriving, others have been left behind. City services, economic development and creative transportation such as the B-cycle, should be equal in all neighborhoods. We can do better in District 7, and I will work with you to make sure we give access and opportunity to all our neighbors.
  • I support raising the minimum wage. When you pay workers a living wage, it comes back to the community in so many ways. Working families want to live and work in Denver. We need to make sure they can.

Visit Cesar Chavez Park, located at 4131 Tennyson Street, to see the bronze bust of Chavez by artist Emanuel Martinez.

All city offices will be closed Monday, March 30, in observance of Cesar Chavez Day. Parking meters in the city will be free, and city trash services will be delayed one day.

Best regards,

Anne McGihon
