Annual Cesar Chavez Pilgrimage

Ganesha High School senior Omar Mendez, Pomona High School senior Brenda Gomez and Garey High School seniors Melanie Andreo and Josue Garcia – recipients of the Latino and Latina Roundtable of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys’ social justice scholarship – lead the 16th annual Cesar Chavez Pilgrimage Saturday morning. Demonstrators marched down Garey Avenue, from the Pomona Unified School District Center to Garey High School, carrying posters of American labor leaders Chavez and Dolores Huerta. Members of the Danza Azteca Toyaacan troupe and more than 100 community members attended.
