¡La Causa Sigue! The Cause Continues!
The UTSA Marches Committee, in partnership with the Cesar E. Chavez Legacy and Education Foundation, invites everyone to the 26th annual Cesar E. Chavez March for Justice.
This year's Grand Marshals are Erika Prosper Nirenberg, First Lady of San Antonio, and Paul Chavez, son of Cesar Chavez and President and CEO of the Cesar Chavez Foundation.
