Over 500 students and parents attended last year and many community role-models. The event is free and pre-registration is not required but suggested. Pre-registration is available by downloading conference information at http://www.hear2000.org The Conference began twelve years ago in the Roseville Joint Union High School District by Board Trustee, Rene Aguilera, and kicks off one of many upcoming Cesar Chavez State Holiday Events.

Cesar Chavez was co-founder and president of the United Farm Workers, leading the union from the 1960s to his death at age 66 in 1993 and organized farm workers in several states. In 2000, Governor Gray Davis signed SB 984, asking that school districts give an hour of instruction in all schools around Chavez's March 31 Birthday about the UFW founder's lessons on non-violence, self-sacrifice and social justice. Then, in the afternoon, students are to engage in some form of public service appropriate for their age and grade called the Cesar Chavez Day of Service of Learning.

“The Cesar E. Chavez Youth Leadership Conference supplements what most school districts do on or around March 31 – his birthday and acts as a primer for learning”, said, Aguilera, also the conference coordinator, “We ask parents, students, educators and business and community leaders to come out and volunteer their time to teach and learn from each other on both days.”

Topics will include student financial aid, scholarships and career information including law, journalism, military, teaching, social welfare, art, music and dance, medicine, law enforcement and pro athletes and many others.

The Conference will feature several notable speakers and presenters from the Sacramento area education community and national organizations such as SEIU Local 1000, California Teacher's Association, Classified School Employees Association, The College Board, Community College, CSU and UC Schools, Sacramento Central Labor Council, Sacramento Visitor’s and Convention Bureau, Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, UC Davis Chicano / Latino Alumni Association, American G.I. Forum, La Raza Lawyers Association, League of United Latin American Citizens, Latinos Unidos, United Farm Workers of America, Latino Leadership Council, Labor Council of Latin American Advancement, Society of Hispanic Engineer Professionals and the National Council of La Raza.
