CANCELED — Eric Chavez, grandson of UFW founder, to be guest speaker at CHAC’s César E. Chávez Recognition Awards on March 27

Editor’s note: The Sixth annual César E. Chávez Community Recognition Breakfast has been canceled due to concern over the impact of Covid-19. Please visit https://coconinochac.org for the latest information.

FLAGSTAFF — Eric Chavez, grandson of United Farmworkers of America founder César E. Chávez, will be the guest speaker at the Sixth annual César E. Chávez Community Recognition Breakfast from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Friday, March 27, 2020 at American Legion Post 3, 204 W. Birch Ave., Flagstaff.

The event, presented by the Coconino County Hispanic Advisory Council (CHAC), with the support of Coconino County and the Coconino County Public Works, honors Coconino County Hispanic community and student leaders. Doors open at 6:30 a.m. with the program beginning promptly at 7:30 a.m.

Eric Chavez, director of communications for the Chavez Institute for Social Justice, grew up as the eldest grandson of César E. Chávez. He born in the middle of a tumultuous period in U.S. history and raised in the heart of a civil rights movement that would change the world. He was encouraged to speak out against wrong and he was taught to take action when it is needed. He has been an active participant and avid supporter who has spoken at hundreds of events across the United States and Mexico on behalf of the movement and legacy of his grandfather.

Eric joined the United Farm Workers of America as an active volunteer in 1991, and as part of his commitment to the Farmworker Movement, he took a vow of poverty for the next three years.  He worked directly with Cesar and other key leaders on organizing projects across the United States including organizing grassroots support for the grape boycott in New York City and lobbing for union support in Washington, D.C., working directly on contemporary issues like immigration, labor and communications.
