On March 31, 1927, César Chávez was born near Yuma, Arizona. On this date in 2017, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval was timely for once and declared today César Chávez Day in the Silver State. Although invited, he did not attend this week's annual celebration. Hope springs eternal for March 31, 2018, at Circus Circus in Reno.
