Posted By on Fri, Oct 11, 2013 at 4:00 PM

The Chicano/Hispano Student Affairs is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the UA Cesar E. Chavez Building. The celebration will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on the eastside of the faculty. Speakers include Fernando Chavez, the eldest son of labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez; Macario Saldate, the longest running director of what is now the UA Mexican American Studies and Research Center and former UA President Emeritus Peter Likins. Likins was president when the building was renamed in 2003 (previously the Economics Building). A ceremony and blessing will be held during the event, and Davis Bilingual Elementary Magnet School students will read poems.
