Jennifer Allen, LCV's National Director of the Latino Outreach Program, wrote a new blog on Huffington Post Latino Voices to honor Cesar Chavez's birthday and highlight his legacy in Latino members of Congress:

But a recent analysis by the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) shows that the vast majority of the Latino members of Congress are standing up for our communities' health and future.
