Join the Cesar Chavez march on Sat.

Brothers and Sisters, 

Join me in the march to commemorate the life and times of human rights leader Cesar Chavez in Sacramento’s 14th Annual Cesar Chavez March.Arriving early will allow you to find better parking as well as friends who will be marching with Team Ali.

When: Saturday, March 29, 2014 10:00am - 1:00pm

The march will end at Cesar Chavez Park downtown. In addition to live music, food, dancing and vendors of all kinds, there will be a schedule of speakers.

I NEED YOU - Help me bring the noise – join me in a show of solidarity as I take the mic to bring our message of workers’ rights, neighborhood empowerment and Take Back, speaking truth to power, just steps from City Hall!

Later, come celebrate with neighbors and supporters at a fundraiser Pizza-Party for Team Ali:

And, if you didn’t get enough walking in the march, no worries – it’s Saturday, after all. That means we’ll be knocking on doors!

When: Saturday, March 29, 2014 4:15pm - 6:30
Where: Giovanni's Pizzeria (5924 S. Land Park Dr.)
It’ll be a busy day tomorrow, but we’re up to the task. And if Saturday doesn’t work for you, contact us at 916.541.3892  / and we’ll set you up, so you can be a part of the noble cause according to your own schedule. We aim to please!
That’s it. I look forward to taking part in the commemoration of one my all time heroes – Cesar Chavez. As we march tomorrow, I will draw strength from the remembrance of his words and deeds. As we struggle to bring people centered priorities back to our City Council, I feel especially inspired by his observation that“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people that are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future, and the future is ours.” 
See you all tomorrow!
