PURPOSE

In conjunction with California’s designated César Chávez Day of Service and Learning, HandsOn Bay Area (HOBA) will engage communities in service in honor of the life and values of César E. Chávez through innovative, rewarding, and inspirational service projects. WHY CELEBRATE CESAR CHAVEZ WEEKEND OF SERVICE AND LEARNING?

As described by his family, César E. Chávez was an ordinary man with an extraordinary legacy of great accomplishment and service to humanity. The César Chávez Day of Service and Learning, a holiday in eight states (AZ, CA, CO, MI, NM, TX, UT, WI) and dozens of cities and counties throughout the nation, celebrates Chávez’s life and work and provides an opportunity for all communities to honor the legacy of César E. Chávez by getting involved in their communities through service projects. The late Senator Robert Kennedy called César E. Chávez, "One of the heroic figures of our time." As a testimony to his lifelong contributions to humanity, he received the highest civilian awards from the United States and Mexico, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Aguila Azteca, respectively. This is the legacy that we celebrate and seek to share with our children and all Californians through HOBA’s César Chávez Weekend of Service and Learning.
