SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - UC San Diego honored the accomplishments of civil rights leader Cesar Chavez.

The school held a luncheon and awards ceremony in honor of the late labor leader Wednesday.

The creator of the popular "La Cucaracha" cartoons gave the keynote address at the event and talked about the importance of remembering Chavez.

"His life showed a message of, you know, peace and also of how we should care for the most humble people in our society which are the workers, especially farm workers,” said Lalo Alcaraz.

Cesar Chavez co-founded the National Farm Workers Association and would have turned 88-years-old this week.
