Article Photos: Obama to designate Chavez home as nat'l monument 2/7

  In this Oct, 2, 2012 photo is the 187-acre site in Keene, Calif, known as Nuestra Seâora Reina de la Paz (Our Lady Queen of Peace), or simply La Paz, that served as the home and the planning center of Chicano leader Cesar Chavez and his farmworker movement starting in the 1970's. Today, the foothills of the Tehachapi mountains continue to house the United Farm Workers of America headquarters and memorials to Chavez, though farmworkers no longer live there. President Obama is designating parts of the property as a national monument and visiting the site on Monday, a move seen as likely to shore up support from Hispanic and progressive voters just five weeks before the election.
