>->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->->

Everyone is welcome to a Cesar Chavez birthday celebration! Join
representatives from a variety of farms, labor and environmental
groups to reflect on the history and explore present struggles for
justice and a safe environment. We will hear from local farmer Efran
Avalos, UFW representative Jorge Rigera on current efforts to
organize Sonoma County vineyards, and Christine Ahn from Food First
on the boycott of Taco Bell spearheaded by farmworkers in Immokalee,
Florida. The evening will also include fresh, organic goodies, video
clips, cultural performances, and time for community discussion.
