SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Today, San Diegans are celebrating the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez. 

Chavez was a Mexican-American farm worker who stood up for the rights of laborers and co-founded the National Farm Workers Association. 

Local janitors, security guards, fast food workers, home health care workers and other supporters or a proposal to raise the minimum wage in California from $10 to $15 will march from the Civic Center Plaza outside City Hall to the State Building. Organizers say the march and subsequent rally were planned to coincide with Cesar Chavez Day. 

CBS News 8's Shannon Handy has the details in this video report.
