What is SR1? SR1 is a non-binding resolution that recognizes the life and accomplishments of César Chávez, encourages all Oregonians to undertake a day of voluntary service in his honor, and encourages all Oregon counties, municipalities, and school districts to join in recognizing César Chávez.
Voz Hispana Causa Chavista is a Woodburn-based organization that works to promote recognition for Latino heroes and culture and organizes Latino voters to increase civic participation. The passage of Senate Resolution 1 is a historic moment that builds on a César Chávez Day in the Woodburn School District, and the naming of a César Chávez elementary school in Eugene.
Special activities on the Senate floor on César Chávez Day, March 31, include a benediction from Father Jose Luis of St. Joseph's, music by the Rondalla Infantil Alma Latina (Latin Soul Youth Guitar Ensemble), and Senate debate.
