Show your solidarity with Utah’s Latino community, network at this great outreach opportunity, and support the work of Utah Coalition of La Raza by sponsoring UCLR's 26th annual Cesar Chavez Peace & Justice Awards Banquet.

This year’s theme is “In Lak’ech,” a timeless Mayan precept that reminds us of the importance of solidarity, equality, and our shared struggles. It is also the subject of the following poem by Luis Valdez and Domingo Martinez Paredes:

In Lak’ech 

Tú eres mi otro yo.

You are my other me.

Si te hago daño a ti,

If I do harm to you,

Me hago daño a mi mismo.

I do harm to myself.

Si te amo y respeto

If I love and respect you,

Me amo y respeto yo. 

I love and respect myself.
