Celebrate Cesar Chavez!
Cesar Chavez' March 31 birthday is soon approaching and we are receiving requests throughout the country for a list of Cesar Chavez events in your neighborhood.
We have a user-friendly calendar tool that allows our supporters to share your local Chavez events--no event is too small or too big. This interactive tool also allows to the public to search for them by zip code and the events appear on a map.
If you're planning a Cesar Chavez event, it even allows folks to RSVP to your event and allows you to recruit event volunteers.
And if you would like to attend a Cesar Chavez event, you can do a search by zip code and look for events within a 5 to 100 mile radius.
To list a Cesar Chavez event go to:
