The civil rights, labor and farmworker community is mourning the loss of Richard E. Chavez, long-time farmworker, civil rights advocate and brother of Cesar Chavez, who died July 27 at 81

 

"Richard was one of those little-known giants in our organization," said current United Farmworkers president Arturo Rodriguez to Bakersfield.com. "Those of us who have been a part of the organization know and understand the effectiveness of his leadership."
