Paul F. Chavez, son of Cesar E. Chavez, to speak at GRCC on March 18

Paul F. Chávez, son of the late labor leader César E. Chávez and president and chairman of the César Chávez Foundation, will be on campus Wednesday, March 18th, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. in the Applied Technology Center (ATC) room 122.

“’We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community…Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.’  These words sit at the heart of my father’s tireless efforts to advocate for change. He believed that protection from the hazards of pesticides; fair wages and improved working conditions were not achievable if not founded upon an improvement in the overall well-being of the community.  This meant finding ways to provide safe housing, education and other services that would bolster individual and family well-being. Thus, improving the progress and prosperity of the whole and empowering them for the road ahead.”
