Cesar Chavez photo exhibit featured at Cathedral
Aleman worked with Chavez and the United Farm Workers (UFW) for 10 years. He served as the managing editor of “El Malcriado,” the UFW membership publication. He also co-founded Radio Campesina KUFW, the first farm worker radio station, and served as the director of the publication department for the UFW’s monthly publication “Food and Justice.”
The exhibit is an effort to offer clear insights into the heart and soul of a deeply religious man, his convictions and his commitment to the rights of workers.
“This photo exhibit captures the meaning of Cesar Chavez as a champion of human dignity and justice,” said Aleman. “These images depict some of the many causes that defined Cesar’s work, from improving working and living conditions for farm workers to the banning of harmful pesticides in the fields.”
The exhibit will run through April 24 at the Cathedral, 555 W. Temple St., Los Angeles.
Prayer of the MonthPapal intentions for November: That priests who experience difficulties may find comfort in their suffering, support in their doubts, and confirmation in their fidelity. That as fruit of the continental mission, Latin American Churches may send missionaries to other Churches.
Papal intentions for December: That children who are victims of abandonment or violence may find the love and protection they need. That Christians, enlightened by the Word incarnate, may prepare humanity for the Savior's coming.
