25th Annual Cesar E. Chavez March for Justice
The Cesar E. Chavez Legacy and Educational Foundation (CECLEF) will be virtually celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Cesar E. Chavez March for Justice. This year’s theme, Continuing the Spirit of La Causa and Honoring The Farmworker is a tribute to the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and all those who have played a part in helping us reach this 25 year milestone in San Antonio. The celebration can be seen via Facebook Live on the Cesar E. Chavez Legacy & Educational Foundation Facebook page @SAChavezFoundation this Saturday, March 27th at 7PM.
The virtual march will visit the people, places, and events that helped shape the march which has become a beautiful tradition for San Antonio. It will also feature personal interviews with Secretary & Former Mayor Julian Castro, Former UFW leaders President Arturo Rodriguez and Rebecca Flores, Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales, and Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Calvert and never before seen pictures and video archives found after the death of the late activist and labor leader Jaime P. Martinez. This will include footage related to the grass roots campaign to change Durango Street to Cesar Chavez Boulevard.
Poetry and music will be highlighted throughout the celebration with special performances of the farm worker anthem “Las Nubes” by Grammy winner, Little Joe y La Familia, super mariachi and award winning musicians, Campanas de America, and San Antonio favorite, El Tallercito de Son.
