Fund the Movement! Continue the Legacy of Cesar Chavez!
This is a very special time of year for Community to Community Development. From March 31st-the birthday of Cesar Chavez-to April 23rd-the day Cesar Chavez passed away-C2C honors the life and work of Cesar Chavez. Our largest annual event, our Community Supported Justice potluck is our way of bringing together our community, building movement capacity and committing ourselves to another year of continuing the legacy of Cesar Chavez.
This year’s 7th annual event, this past Friday, March 29th, was a GRAND success with over 250 folks from all over Washington state in attendance. Our keynote speaker, Aurora Martin, Executive Director of Columbia Legal Services, and C2C Members Natalia Martinez and Alba Arreola reminded us all of how real and necessary the work of C2C is for members of our community.
C2C would like to thank those community members who showed up on Friday night to support our event!
And a HUGE thank you to our co-sponsors, donors and tireless volunteers for their generosity and time!

Once again, the annual Cesar Chavez Community Supported Justice Potluck was an evening of good food, fun, music, and friendship. This year we were joined by Marc Grossman, Cesar Chavez’s longtime press secretary, speechwriter and personal aide. Marc still serves as a spokesman for the United Farm Workers of America and is communications director for the Cesar Chavez Foundation. Our program was opened with a traditional Aztec dance honoring the life and work of Cesar Chavez. The local group, Ameyaltonal, brought authentic Aztec tradition and culture to our event.During this community event, Community to Community launched our Campaign to End Racial Profiling in Whatcom County. Supported by our community members and allies, we are taking the next step forward to change law enforcement tactics that affect our most vulnerable community members. Please watch for more details in the coming months.
Our evening was concluded, with the music and dancing of the Seattle Fandango Project! It was the perfect ending to an event honoring the life and work of Cesar Chavez, Community to Community and community supported justice!A BIG thank you to our silent auction supporters!
