César Chávez and Dolores Huerta Day is an annual day of celebration and call to action at the George Washington University hosted by the Multicultural Student Services Center, Cisneros Hispanic Institute, RGSLL Department/ Spanish Program, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement, and Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service. 

On César Chávez and Dolores Huerta Day, we educate the greater George Washington community on the life and works of César Chávez, advocate for social justice issues that still affect our society and, most of all, celebrate the service and commitment to reform that César Chávez embodied every day of his life.

Interested in Participating? 

March 30th will be a day to educate the greater George Washington community on the life and works of César Chávez and Dolores Huerta and we need your help!  As a part of the celebration, we will be hosting Workshops and  Values Fair Tabling Sessions from 9:30am-4:00pm and we are recruiting GW Organizations and Community Partners to participate in one or both of the opportunities!

 

Values Fair

Set up as a tabling event, the Values Fair will have three time blocks (9:30-12:0012:20-2:002:00-3:30) in which you and your organization can sign-up to "table". Your organization will be 1 of 12-15 other groups that will have the opportunity to network with approximately 500 members of the GW Community! As a part of tabling, your organization will select one of Chávez's Ten Core Values and present your work/mission through the lens of that value, identifying how your work embodies that particular value(s). 

Please note that this is a nonpartisan event and does not represent an endorsement.

Workshops

Through 45-minute workshops, we hope to educate the greater George Washington community on the life and works of César Chávez and Dolores Huerta, advocate for social justice issues that still affect our society and, most of all, celebrate the service and commitment to reform that Chávez and Huerta embodied every day of their lives. 

Please note: Your proposed workshops can take many forms! They can be educational, advocacy-based, a panel, presentation, or art/music performances on a topic of your choice related to social justice and/or the Latinx community.
