Richard Chavez

Richard Chavez, who helped organize the United Farm Workers with his brother Ceasar, passed away yesterday.

In addition to his other organizing activites, Richard was the one who designed the distinctive UFW eagle logo and flag.

I met and talked to him durring one of his many visits to Tucson. He was a profoundly humble and decent man.

The UFW has a remembrance on their website.
