The late Cesar Chavez was a migrant farmer worker and organizer, and a powerful example of what people can do when they unite for a meaningful cause. His struggle, hard work and dedication inspired and empowered people throughout the world.

AARP Colorado recognizes this great leader and the face of the Chicano Movement with its sponsorship of a celebration and parade in his memory to be held April 1, 2017. The march will commence at Regis University at 10 a.m. and end in celebration at Cesar Chavez Park on West 41st Avenue at Tennyson Street in Denver, starting at 11:30 a.m.

This year, AARP will be at the event, focusing on the importance of keeping Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid strong for the Latino community. AARP continues its fight to ensure that any health care reforms protect older adults and their families. Stop by and talk with our AARP representatives about these important issues.

“We are working to make sure that any new health-care reforms reduce the cost of prescription drugs and stop insurance companies from overcharging older Latinos,” said Roberto Rey, AARP Colorado director of multicultural engagement.
