    Is this event only for people that read/speak English? While trying to translate the invitation to Spanish by selecting from the drop down menu, Spanish is not available.
    This event is a great opportunity for Spanish speakers to learn more about the great work of Cesar Chavez. Please advise

    Hello Ana,

    Thanks for letting us know about the website translation not working – it is something we are looking into! As far as the event on Saturday, it will be bilingual! Hope to see you there!
