Nancy Pelosi Marks César Chávez Day, Trans Visibility Day on Easter Sunday

2024-03-31 13:41:10

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) marked Transgender Visibility Day and César Chávez Day on Easter Sunday, though California state government offices will only observe Chávez Day on Monday, April 1.

Pelosi issued a tweet honoring the late farmworker union organizer and civil rights leader on Sunday, shortly after posting a message of Easter greetings to Christians nationwide.

She then issued a tweet (or “post” on X) in honor of the Transgender Day of Visibility:

Chavez was born on March 31, 1927 in Yuma, Arizona. He built his legacy in California, where his family were migrant farm workers, and where he became a labor organizer. His birthday is an annual state public holiday, though it is typically observed on Monday, April 1, when his birthday falls on a Sunday.

Pelosi’s recognition of César Chávez Day on Easter Sunday comes as President Joe Biden faces criticism for recognizing the day as Transgender Day of Visibility — one of over 50 LGBTQIA2S+-themed annual observances.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a proclamation on Sunday recognizing March 31, 2024 as César Chávez Day; he issued a separate Easter message.
