César Chávez Day of Service

LAWorks is looking for volunteers to participate in the César Chávez Day of Service in Echo Park on March 26.

Volunteers will work with and mentor Los Angeles Unified School District students as they create murals with community justice and human rights themes. Once completed, these murals, painted on canvas, will be donated to schools and libraries in Los Angeles and displayed for the enrichment of the Greater Los Angeles community.

The event will feature guest speaker Andres Chávez, organizer and grandson of César Chávez.

Painting will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
