Hundreds gathered at Sanchez Farm, 14 acres of open space operated by La Plazita Institute in the South Valley. They were there to work in honor of labor organizer and activist César Chávez. His daughter, Liz Chávez Villarino, flew in from California to attend the service event on Friday, March 26, and the march from the South Valley to the National Hispanic Cultural Center the following day.
Participants experienced the backbreaking labor of a farm worker, said Chávez Villarino. “We believe it is important to celebrate my father's life not with day off of school or a day off of work, but a day of service.” Read the full Alibi report.
