To commemorate Cesar Chavez, Chico State students gathered in Trinity Commons on March 28 to show solidarity with the California Faculty Association strike.

“We want to continue Cesar Chavez’s legacy of labor rights,” said Yvette Rivera, a senior psychology major. “It’s important faculty receive the pay they deserve.”

The student demonstration was further fueled by an independent fact-finder report that found in favor of a 5 percent raise in faculty pay.

Students handed out shirts to students who wanted to support the faculty and later participated in a march across campus.
