Cesar Chavez in Education Conference May Annually  Grounded in the core values of this great leader, the goal of the conference is to engage a community of parents, counselors, educators, students, and other stakeholders in critical discussion and reflection to promote educational efforts that work towards collective dignity and social transformation.
