Cesar Chavez’ March 31 birthday is soon approaching and we are receiving requests throughout the country for a list of Cesar Chavez events in your neighborhood.

We have a user-friendly calendar tool that allows our supporters to share your local Chavez events–no event is too small or too big. This interactive tool also allows to the public to search for them by zip code and the events appear on a map.

If you’re planning a Cesar Chavez event, it even allows folks to RSVP to your event and allows you to recruit event volunteers.

And if you would like to attend a Cesar Chavez event, you can do a search by zip code and look for events within a 5 to 100 mile radius.
