Caesar Chavez Day of Service

This year, in celebration of Cesar Chavez Day, the RCD Board and Staff spent an afternoon of service giving back to our community.

Cesar Chavez Day, which takes place on March 31 each year, recognizes the life and legacy of a civil rights leader, and acknowledges and uplifts the fundamental rights of dignity and respect for all people.
