Naturalization ceremony takes place on what would have been Cesar Chavez's 90th birthday

Cesar Chavez fought for basic human rights and called for people to serve their civic duty.

Today would have been Chavez's 90th birthday and to celebrate, 25 people gathered at the Cesar Chavez National Monument in Keene to become U.S. citizens.

The 25 completed the final step of their naturalization process before reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and receiving a certificate.

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla was the keynote speaker at the naturalization ceremony.
