We can all agree – making sure students don’t go hungry is a community responsibility. The #BuildBackBetter Act would not only help provide free meals to students during the school year but also help families purchase food during the summer.

On this day in 1970, Cesar Chavez was sentenced to an indefinite jail term for his work boycotting lettuce produced by farms that had used coercive tactics against the United Farm Workers. To overcome racial inequality, we must confront our history.
