The Convocation honors the memory of Cesar Chavez, his achievements, commitment to social justice/civil rights, unrelenting efforts to cultivate grassroots leadership, and his successful formation of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW). His courage and commitment to justice and social change has inspired many generations of activists across the nation and continues to do so.
