Cesar Chavez Legacy Week 2019

Posted by & filed under Buzzed, Campus Life, News.

The annual Cesar Chavez Legacy Week is focused on reframing the legacy to highlight the intersectionality of farm worker’s identities. There are many intersecting identities that come from farm working backgrounds, whether that be race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Cesar Chavez Legacy Week takes place from March 11 to March 15.

The Week of Service will be taking donations the entire week for children’s books as well as farmer’s aid. Farmer’s aid includes sunscreen, bandanas, hats, water bottles, bags, and more.

Donations can be dropped off at the Serna Center in the Riverfront Center, Full Circle Project in the Library Breezeway, the Multi-Cultural Center, and the ASI Hot Spot.

The events for the week can be found below:
