Fifteenth Annual César E. Chávez Memorial Celebration

CSU Stanislaus will host its fifteenth annual César E. Chávez Memorial Celebration on Thursday, March 25.
This free event is open to the public and will begin with a reception at 5 p.m. in the Quad (or Carol Burke Lounge if there is rain). Dancers from Balet Folclórico, Los Falcones and Waterford After-School Danza Folclórico Mexicana will perform. Parents and children will have an opportunity to make their own United Farm Workers flag, and participate in a march led by the student theater club Teatro Los Hijos del Campo.  The march will be based on events in César E. Chávez’s life.  It will start at 6 p.m. in the Quad and end at the Event Center, just prior to the main program.  The main program at the Event Center runs from 6:25 to 8 p.m. with the following activities:
* The keynote speaker will be Esteban Villa, a renowned artist, master muralist and co-founder of the Sacramento-based artists collective, Royal Chicano Air Force. Villa’s theme for his presentation will be, “César Chávez and the Royal Chicano Air Force,” in which he will discuss the mutual regard the artists of the RCAF and Chávez had for each other.
* César E. Chávez Poster and Essay Contest winners for the junior high and high school divisions will be announced and entries displayed. Mujeres Latinas of Stanislaus County are supporting this contest.
* The Higher Education Poster Contest winners honoring Chávez will be announced for CSU Stanislaus students.  This contest is supported by the Latino Business Association of Modesto.
* Mariachi Rayos del Sol from César Chávez High School of Stockton will also perform.
César E. Chávez organized thousands of farm workers to the shout of ¡Huelga! in the 1960s and 1970s. The farm-workers movement gained the support of religious and political leaders around the world. Against overwhelming odds, the strike and boycott brought farm workers union representation and, ultimately, the revolutionary Agricultural Labor Relations Act in 1975. Chávez died in 1993 in the midst of a continuing struggle against the use of deadly pesticides in farm fields.

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • 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."
