Anthony Chavez: Continuing a Legacy of Inspiration

When Cesar Chavez died, 30,000 people showed up to march in his honor. He was the visionary force behind the United Farm Workers union and had led the Farm Workers Movement fighting for civil rights while promoting nonviolence. Anthony Chavez, seven-years-old at the time, knew him simply as --Grandpa. Today Anthony is a leader in his own right, he travels the country speaking on behalf of the Cesar Chavez Foundation, keeping his grandfather's legacy alive, while advocating for service learning initiatives in the field of education. "I remind students what my grandfather said, 'We don't need perfect political systems, what we need is more perfect participation,'" Anthony says. His vibrant journey includes many years serving as travel assistant to Brother David Steindl-Rast, the world-renowned Benedictine monk, author and inter-religious pioneer. { read more }
