The Burbank Human Relations Council recently took a bus trip to the Cesar Chavez National Monument in Keene, California.
Together, the community and BHRC members learned about the legacy of Cesar Chavez, his family and the United Farmworkers movement.
Victor Griego, who worked with the UFW, spoke with guests and shared his insight. The group also had the opportunity to meet with Andres Chavez, executive director of the National Chavez Center and the grandson of Cesar Chavez, for a casual discussion.
“We hope to be able to do more of these educational and inspirational trips in the future,” said Marsha Ramos, BHRC president.
The BHRC invites the public to join them at their next meeting on Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. in the conference room on the second floor at 1545 Victory Blvd.
