We want to see your art, vision and inspiration represented at the march honoring Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta and the farmworkers movement. Tthere will be a special recognition of banners after the march. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Remember, the theme of the march this year is “La Union Hace La Fuerza/ Stronger United”
