For nearly twenty years, the Springfield and greater Lane County community have gathered to Celebrate and remember Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, two human rights leaders. Springfield Alliance for Equality and Respect (SAfER) and Springfield Public Schools have co-sponsored this special event.

We honor these role models who worked non-violently to uphold the dignity of farmworkers and gave us the inspiring words “¡Si,Se Puede!” “Yes, we can !”

The Celebration has been fully bilingual and student-led, featuring music, dance and art, created by students from all levels of Springfield schools. Delicious food and a warm community atmosphere have been a consistent part of this much anticipated annual event.

This year, the celebration will take place online.
