About the Event
Every year, UCLR hosts a banquet celebrating Utah's Latino community and honoring the legacy of Cesar Chavez. At the banquet, UCLR awards those individuals and organizations who, through their work, advocacy and impact, have continued to peacefully advance the rights, opportunities and social justice for Latinos across the state.
UCLR also highlights the winners of a language and visual arts competition held by local school districts and themed around Cesar Chavez and social justice.
For 2018, UCLR will be celebrating our 25th anniversary of the Cesar Chavez Peace & Justice Awards Banquet. For the first time, UCLR will also be accepting public nominations, which can be made online HERE until February 28, 2018.
Our theme for this year's banquet is "Sembrando Semillas" (Planting Seeds). With current events and the ongoing struggle for social justice, UCLR's is celebrating 25 years of planting the seeds for change through community education, civic engagement and grassroots advocacy.
