Join Campus E+E Mexican American Culture and Latino Leadership Council for the César Chávez Legacy Dinner. This year's keynote speaker will be Christine Chávez, granddaughter of César Chávez.
César Chávez was a Mexican-American farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist. He was a unique and humble leader, as well as a great humanitarian and communicator who influenced and inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life. As a common man with an uncommon vision, César Chávez stood for equality, justice and dignity for all Americans. His universal principals remain as relevant and inspiring today as they were when he first began his movement. His birthday, March 31st, is César Chávez Day and serves a reminder to his amazing legacy.
Following in her grandfather's steps, Christine Chávez has been involved in the protection of farm worker's rights. Today, Christine works for the United States Department of Agriculture. She serves as the Farmworker Coordinator. Not only is she involved with labor equality but she fights for civil rights and social justice. Latina Magazine recently named Christine as one of their top Latinas for her longtime involvement with civil rights issues; particularly, her work on marriage equality.
