The picture shows a large eagle in the background. The eagle represents strength and power when the members formed a union. In front of the eagle there is a picture of Cesar Chavez holding a torch. This represents that there is hope and faith that the migrant farm workers will have better living conditions in the future. The picture also shows a dove. The dove represents peace. In fact, Cesar Chavez wanted problems to be resolved in a peaceful way. In the background there is a field of green vegetables. Cesar Chavez was a great leader for the farm workers. He believed that YES IT CAN BE DONE. SI SE PUEDE! People need to work together as a team so that problems and issues can be resolved.

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
