Cesar E. Chávez Commemorative Committee (CCCC) organizes and promotes the annual Cesar E. Chávez Day Celebration and The March For Justice held in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. PyS, a founding member of the CCCC, has served as the main organizer for the past 25 years. The event is the first of its kind in the nation and attracts over 5,000 students and parents. The goal is to teach youth about Cesar E. Chávez’s important non-violent work on behalf of farmworkers and ensuring that his legacy lives on.

PyS served as a fiscal agent for the Cesar E. Chávez Monument Project that was inaugurated on October 22, 2004, at the corner of Wolfskill Street

and Truman Street in the City of San Fernando. The memorial is the largest and most intricate monument in the nation that honors the great civil rights and labor leader, Cesar E. Chávez. The memorial consists of a fountain, a bronze statue of Cesar E. Chávez, a sculpture of ten farm workers, and a 100-foot mural, placed in a 23,000 square foot park-like setting that together educates and provides an opportunity to reflect on the significance of Cesar E. Chávez’s life.
