Coachella, Calif. — Residents of the Eastern Coachella Valley are encouraged to provide their input for the city’s planned Cesar E. Chavez Memorial at an upcoming workshop on Tuesday, November 20, at Cesar Chavez Elementary School.
This memorial will be located De Oro Park at the northwest corner of Avenida de Oro and Avenue 50 across from Cesar Chavez Elementary. The current plan is to rename the park in the late civil right leader’s honor as well design a monument dedicated to his life and work.
