La Placita - Sunday, October 15th 2017 [POSTPONED]
With a heavy heart the César Chávez Dolores Huerta Commemorative Committee must postpone our third annual La Placita event, scheduled for this coming Sunday, October 15th.
Due to air quality concerns for this coming weekend throughout the Bay Area, we have determined an outdoor gathering such as La Placita would be unsafe.
Please signup for our newsletter to receive revised La Placita details and notifications for future César Chávez Dolores Huerta Commemorative Committee events.
