Jill Biden coming to the Valley for Cesar Chavez Day

First Lady Jill Biden is coming to the Central Valley this week, marking her first visit to the area since her husband took office earlier in the year. 

Biden is scheduled to travel to Delano on Wednesday for the Day of Action with the Cesar Chavez Foundation, United Farm Workers and the UFW Foundation. 

The Day of Action is observed annually on March 31, Cesar Chavez’s birthday, and celebrates the legacy of the labor rights activist. 

The event will take place at Delano’s The Forty Acres, the first permanent UFW headquarters, which is registered as a National Historic Landmark.
