Labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez will be honored at a teach-in March 28 at Hayward City Hall. Cal State East Bay faculty members-- Lettie Ramirez, professor of teacher education, and Carlos Salomon, associate professor of ethnic studies and Latin American studies -- are scheduled to speak.

The teach-in, entitled "La Familia," is hosted by city Hayward Councilmen Mark Salinas and Francisco Zermeno. "In 2011, Councilman Zermeno and I started hosting these teach-ins to honor Cesar Chavez, his work and his legacy," Salinas said.

Musician Jorge Gabriel Martinez Feliciano will perform, along with Mariachi Juvenil de Hayward. Food will be provided by three Hayward restaurants. The teach-in starts with a reception at 5 p.m., with the program beginning at 5:30 p.m. City Hall is at 777 B St.
