  • National Park Service Submits Recommendation To Congress To Establish New National Historical Park To Honor César Chávez And The Farm Labor Movement | National Park Foundation
    Rights movement will be preserved and shared as an inspiration for future generations Historians from the National Park Service and California State University Fullerton evaluated approximately 100 sites related to Chávez and the farm labor movement in developing the report entitled the César Chávez Special Resource Study which was requested by Congress in the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 P L 110 229 The report not only considered sites for inclusion in the park system but also for additional designations such as listing in the National Register of Historic Places or designation as a national historic landmark It also identifies five management alternatives exploring a range of approaches to manage protect or restore significant resources and to provide or enhance public use and enjoyment The National Park Service has identified the creation of a national historical park as the preferred alternative as it would protect the largest number of nationally significant resources related to the farm labor movement including opportunities for protection of the national historical park sites in perpetuity Through the special resource study process and public comment period the NPS made the following determinations Of the approximately 100 sites evaluated five have preliminarily been found to be nationally significant the Forty Acres National Historic Landmark Delano Calif Filipino Community Hall Delano Calif César E Chávez National Monument at Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz Keene Calif the Santa Rita Center Phoenix Ariz and the route of the 1966 Delano to Sacramento March The 1966 Delano to Sacramento route also meets eligibility criteria for designation as a national historic trail A partnership based national park site or technical assistance program which provides opportunities for collaborative management to protect cultural resources provide public access interpretation and educational opportunities at certain sites associated with the life of César E Chávez and the farm labor movement is a feasible addition to the U S National Park System There is a need for National Park Service management to achieve partnership based protection of significant resources and enhanced visitor appreciation of the important resources and stories associated with the life of César E Chávez and the farm labor movement Under the preferred alternative transmitted to Congress today the César E Chávez National Monument in Keene Calif would serve as a cornerstone for the new national historical park The monument was created on October 8 2012 by President Obama as the 398th unit of the National Park System and includes Chávez home and the headquarters of the United Farm Workers of America UFW since the early 1970s when Chávez was its president It is funded in part by the American Latino Heritage Fund of the National Park Foundation which supports the work of the National Park Service in preserving historic places that tell a more inclusive story of American Latinos economic civic and cultural contributions to the American experience If approved by Congress the National Park Service would manage these sites under a partnership arrangement in which current owners would maintain ownership and management
