Annual March for Justice and 5k Stride for Scholarships Run
23rd Annual March for Justice
For 23 years The Cesar 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 Chavez encouraged us to embrace so that we can overcome the injustices and inequalities our community faces.
