Cesar Chavez Celebration
Wednesday, March 28, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Join the Latino Staff Association for a Cesar Chavez celebration featuring Vicki Lynn Ruiz, Distinguished Professor Emerita of History and Chicano/Latino Studies at UC Irvine and the first Latina recipient of the National Humanities Medal. An expert in 20th century U.S. history, Ruiz has dedicated much of her nearly 40-year academic career to reclaiming the stories of Latinas who have fought for civil and labor rights. She will be speaking on the topic of “Why Latino history matters to U.S. history.”
This event is co-sponsored by PACSW, with support from Diversity & Engagement.
