Sierra College Rocklin Campus will hold the annual Cesar Chavez Higher Education Speaker Series. This year the topic is “Do All Lives Matter? Listening to cross cultural perspectives.”
The purpose of the Cesar E. Chavez Higher Education Speaker Series is to advance the social justice and cultural awareness agenda that Cesar Chavez and others worked so hard to achieve. Each year, a forum of distinguished panelists is invited to provide an intellectual and thought-provoking opportunity for students, faculty, staff and communities to gain a greater understanding of the most complex issues to face our nation. It is in that spirit that we celebrate this legacy with our annual Cesar E. Chavez Higher Education Speaker Series event.
