César Chávez Day

On behalf of the George Washington University Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service, it is our pleasure to formally invite you to our César Chávez Day Celebration that will take place on March 31st, 2016 on the Marvin Center third floor, from 4:00 to 8:00 PM.

Honoring the life, work, and values of César Chávez, this event will be a unique and exciting opportunity to join together as a community of dedicated individuals and organizations committed to ensuring the continued legacy of one of the twentieth century’s foremost civil rights activists, and a true American hero.

March 31st will be a day to educate the greater George Washington community on the life and works of César Chávez, advocate for the 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.

The GW César Chávez Planning Committee is currently working together with over 30 different organizations, both on and off campus, to ensure that this pioneering event brings the George Washington and greater DC communities together in their shared commitment to justice and service. As we strive to ensure the continued legacy of César Chávez, we hope you will join us in building a tradition of celebration, service, commitment, and dedication for years to come.

As a communal celebration and event, all members of the George Washington community are invited to join. Please share with us your wisdom, work, and example in honor of César Chávez as an attendee, speaker or panelist.

We look forward to sharing together in this celebration and call to action!

¡Sí se puede!
