14th Annual César E. Chávez Celebration at CSU Stanislaus

The 14th Annual César E. Chávez Celebration on Thursday, March 26 at California State University, Stanislaus will feature former United Farm Workers organizer and Turlock native Aggie Rose Chavez and noted labor attorney Liza Medina as guest speakers.
A birthday salute to the ideals of the late farm labor leader César Chávez who died in 1993, the program gets under way at 5 p.m. with a reception featuring Latin jazz and a silent auction in the Carol Burke Lounge that will benefit the work of the César E. Chavez Celebration Committee which sponsors and organizes the event. The main program featuring the guest speaker presentations and dance and music performances follows at 6 p.m. in the nearby Event Center. Admission is free and open to the public.
Medina and her husband, Eliseo, worked for farmworker unions in the 1970s in the Oxnard area where they live today. She credits her involvement in the farmworker labor movement to a meeting with César Chávez when she was 10 years old, an event that she said “changed my life.” Her husband, a Service Employees International Union executive vice president who represents 17 states, advised the Obama presidential campaign on Latino issues.
Aggie Rose Chavez is a well known literacy advocate. She practices law in Oakland, focusing on Social Security, SSI disability, and family law matters. 
Winners of the annual César Chávez poster art, essay, and poetry contest will have their work showcased at the program and be presented with their awards. Stanislaus County kindergarten through 12th grade students participate in the contest that includes two age groups. CSU Stanislaus students will also have entries in a higher education poster contest.
Ballet Folklorico dances will be performed by the “Los Falcones,” “Xochipilli,” and “Movimiento Nahuatl” dance groups.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
