AISD celebrates first annual César Chávez-Dolores Huerta Day

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 by Tai Moses

On Friday, March 29, the school district will honor the lives and legacies of two Latino icons: César Chávez and Dolores Huerta. The two civil rights activists and labor leaders co-founded the National Farm Workers Association in the 1960s, which later became the United Farm Workers Union, to champion the rights of laborers. Staff and students are invited to join in the celebration, which features lessons on Chávez and Huerta, a free movie screening of César Chávez at 11:15 a.m. in the CAC Board Auditorium, 1111 W. Sixth St., followed by a musical performance by Vibrass Ska Ensemble, a marching band from El Salvador.
