    Annual Cesar E. Chavez March for Justice

    The Cesar E. Chavez March for Justice has been a day our San Antonio community to unite, celebrate, and remember a great humanitarian. Equally important, it is a day to never forget the Si Se Puede Spirit Cesar E. Chavez encouraged us to embrace so that we can overcome the injustices and inequalities our community faces.
