César Chávez-Dolores Huerta Day

Date

We’re #AISDproud to celebrate César Chávez-Dolores Huerta Day on Friday, March 29. On this day, we will honor the lives and legacies of the two Hispanic civil rights leaders who formed the United Farm Workers Union in the 1960s to protest the poor treatment of laborers. 

Schools will have opportunities to engage students and staff in the celebration, including lessons focusing on both Chávez and Huerta and messages shared on morning announcements and social media. 

Austin ISD central administration staff can join in the celebration at a free movie screening of César Chávez at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, March 29 in the CAC Board Auditorium, 1111 W. 6th Street followed by a performance by Vibrass Ska Ensemble, a marching band from San Salvador, El Salvador.
