Posted 04/13/17

Throughout the month of March, guest speakers were brought into Tucson Unified schools with the idea to share the legacy of César Chavez and Dolores Huerta. The presentations emphasized their efforts in the fight for rights for workers with the United Farm Workers movement, including the slogan that Huerta came up with and Chavez made famous, "Si se Puede," meaning, "Yes we can." Presenters included Adam Ragan, Cam Juarez, and Regina Romero at K-8 schools all over the district.
