This Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of the Cesar Chavez March in Denver.  Ramon Del Castillo from the Cesar Chavez Peace and Justice Committee of Denver called in to the "First Take with Lando and Chavis" morning show to discuss Chavez's legacy, and this year's honorees.

"We keep people motivated throughout the year, and we try to get into schools to educate youth about the work Cesar Chavez has done," said Del Castillo.

The legacy of labor organizer Cesar Chavez takes a major leap this weekend, with the release of a Hollywood biopic "Cesar Chavez: The Movie."  This audio feature begins with a clip from the film starring Michael Pena, America Ferrara as wife Helen Chavez, and Rosario Dawson portraying the other major figure in the California farm worker labor movement Dolores Huerta.
