Mission Statement

The mission of the National Chavez Center, a (501(c)(3)) non-profit charitable organization, is to maximize human potential to improve communities by preserving, promoting and applying the legacy and universal values of civil rights leader Cesar E. Chavez.

Description

In 1993, Cesar's family and friends established the National Chavez Center to educate people about the life and work of this great American civil rights leader, and to inspire individuals and communities to carry on his values and timeless vision for a better world.

Since its inception, the Center has grown from a start-up organization to one that now has an annual budget of $2.5 million. In addition, the Center has increasingly been recognized as a national institution with an ecumenical vision and ambitious programmatic goals.

Today, from the fields of the Southwest to urban centers across the nation, Cesar's struggle for justice, equality, and civil rights and the work of the Foundation he inspired are resonating with Americans from diverse walks of life.
