−14th Annual Cesar E. Chavez Community Tribute and Celebration5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
“From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength.” Cesar E. Chavez
Friday evening, April 11, 2014, Project New Village (PNV) will convene its 14th Annual Cesar E. Chavez Community Tribute and Celebration, to honor the life, lessons and legacy of an uncompromising advocate for social justice, environmentalist, consumer advocate, labor leader and farm worker.
This year’s theme is “Food Injustice: Social Consciousness Raising, Remembered, and Revisited”
The event will be hosted by the San Diego Community college District Continuing Education on the campus of Educational Cultural Complex at 4343 Ocean View Blvd. San Diego California, 5:00pm – 8:00pm.
To commemorate the of legacy of Cesar E. Chavez, Project New Village has called together civic and community leaders, activists, and food advocates to re-inspire and renew our collective interest to rebuild the “movement” for social justice. We see the struggle for food justice as an emerging civil rights platform and food security as a compelling need, especially among the most vulnerable in our society.
We believe that this “transformed movement” has to be inclusive in the spirit of the founding of the United Farm Workers (UFW). “I think that whatever nationality you are, you should be treated equally, otherwise you don’t have equality”, said Philip Vera Cruz, noted Filipino activist and co-founder, along with Larry Itliong, of the UFW.+5:00 pm14th Annual Cesar E.

−Celebrating Tecate’s Indigenous Culture12:30 pm – 9:00 pm
From event website:
Fundacion La Puerta’s Parque Del Profesor is named in honor of Edmond Szekely (co-founder of Rancho La Puerta.) The Parque, set in the foothills of Mt. Kuchumaa, is a cultural, environmental education and recreational center. Las Piedras Environmental Education Center lies within the heart of the Parque and provides a magical place where children learn to love nature. Events held at the Parque are the heart of the Fundacion’s overall vision of achieving a sustainable way of life in the Tecate region based on respect and celebration of the human and natural communities. While at the Parque, Esperanza Castro, Fundacion’s Indigenous Cultural Consultant, will lead an interpretive walk where we will learn about edible and medicinal uses of local native plants and gain an indigenous perspective of the natural landscape.
Our day concludes with dinner at El Lugar De Nos, where you will be treated to an unforgettable meal featuring local ingredients prepared by Mariela Manzano (former chef at Rancho La Puerta) and her extraordinary culinary team.
