Cesar Chavez Day 2015

rob loucks

For the fourth year, Confluence has honored the life's work of Cesar Chavez by bringing together our team of AmeriCorps Members for a day of service.

This year's committee members Danielle Voisin and Rachel Willis forged a partnership with Ian Niktab of Planting Communities and Erubiel Valladares who works closely with PCUN in Woodburn, OR.

Erubiel lead us in an overview of migrant worker issues and history in Oregon while giving us a tour of the PCUN offices, radio station and the CAPACES Leadership Institute. Afterwards we broke into smaller groups to clear a community garden, build garden boxes for an elementary school, weed an eco-roof, and reorganize a small garden.

We wrapped up the day with a group meal of burritos from a local business and learning more about Planting Communities food justice work.
