On Easter Sunday, Nancy Pelosi marked both César Chávez Day and Transgender Visibility Day via social media posts.

César Chávez was a prominent farmworker union organizer and civil rights leader born in 1927 in Arizona who worked to improve conditions for migrant workers in California.

While his birthday of March 31 is an annual state holiday in California, it is typically observed on the following Monday if the date falls on a Sunday.

Pelosi’s recognition of Chávez Day on Easter Sunday comes as President Biden has faced criticism for also acknowledging Transgender Visibility Day that day, which is one of over 50 annual LGBTQIA2S+-themed observances.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued separate proclamations for Chávez Day and Easter.
