A walking tour along the pedestrian mall in downtown Riverside leads you to a very important statue. That of Cesar Chavez. Chavez was a labor leader who led boycotts and peaceful marches to get better treatment for farm workers. you will learn on our A Taste of Riverside Tour that this is a very important cause to Riverside and to those picking oranges. Because of Chavez workers enjoy better pay and less exposure to pesticides. He inspires us all to strive to accomplish what is important to us and to never give up! Si se puede! Yes we can!
