This annual event focuses on educating our communities about the legacy of César E. Chávez, an unselfish advocate of social justice and respect for human dignity.

The César E. Chávez Celebration programming highlights the youth in our community. Building on the success of the Marcus Center’s Dr. King Birthday Celebration, we engage young people from schools throughout the region through art, writing, and speech contests.

Non-Violence – Invoking non-violence as the most powerful tool for achieving social/economic justice and equality; action that requires boldness and courage versus meekness and passivity.

“Non-violence is not inaction. It is not discussion. It is not for the timid or weak … Nonviolence is hard work. It is the willingness to sacrifice. It is the patience to win.”
