On Saturday, March 27th, Elizabeth Chavez Villarino speaks about her father’s legacy outside the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Quoting her father, Elizabeth Chavez states, “You’re never strong enough that you don’t need help,” in order to stress one of Cesar Chavez’ core values: volunteerism. Helping others, in turn, can wind up helping yourself. Cesar Chavez advocated strength in communities through volunteerism and non-violence. He also founded the United Farm Workers, a successful union for the first time in the United States.
I’m Shine Nair and I am fifteen years old. I attend Bosque Prep in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have been there since sixth grade and I am now a freshman. At Bosque, every year we have something called Winterim. Winterim is the week before spring break where you have the option of doing an activity at school or travel and it counts as an educational part of school. I choose to travel every year.

together. Do you remember
that? Because I do.
