LAUSD Board votes to support Cesar E. Chavez Day
Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education members Tuesday voted to promote and support March 31 as Cesar E. Chavez Day
Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education members Tuesday voted to promote and support March 31 as Cesar E. Chavez Day.
In February 2000, LAUSD Board of Education members supported California State Senate Bill 984 which established the birthday of Cesar Chavez as a state holiday. The bill became law in August of that year. Currently, LAUSD celebrates the late civil rights leader by honoring the State-established Cesar Chavez Day of Service and Learning, created for public school children and to promote service to the communities of California in honor of the life and work of Cesar Chavez.
This resolution directs Superintendent of Schools David L. Brewer III to work with all school administrators, teachers and community to implement the full intent of the State-established Cesar Chavez Day of Service and Learning.

View Park resident and retired Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) police officer David Anthony couldn’t believe his eyes when he entered the Lock n’ Load gun and ammo store in Henderson, Nev.
But there it was right in plain view, a pristine 60mm machine gun positioned high on a shelf for sale; a weapon, he feels, that kept him and his platoon alive during his tour of duty as a 19-year-old machine gunner in 1968 in the Vietnam War.
