Showing the Importance of the Latino Vote, Julie Chavez Rodriguez Will Run Biden’s 2024 Campaign

From a Washington Post story by Meryl Kornfield headlined “Julie Chavez Rodriguez, from quiet aide to running Biden’s campaign”:

Julie Chavez Rodriguez, the newly announced campaign manager for President Biden’s reelection effort, likes to jokes that when she was a child, her family — including her grandfather Cesar Chavez, legendary founder of the United Farm Workers of America — did not hold Sunday picnics. They held Sunday pickets.

By age 5, Chavez Rodriguez was handing out pamphlets to farmworkers. She helped organize marches demanding labor protections for those who harvest the nation’s fruits and vegetables. At age 9, she was arrested outside a New Jersey grocery store while distributing fliers about the dangers of pesticides.
