Every year on the last Saturday of March, thousands of people in San Antonio gather to celebrate the life and legacy of Cesar Estrada Chavez. This year’s march had special meaning for me, not only because it was the 15th year of the march and because it was my 11th year as one of the organizers. It was because I got to march along one of my role models.
