El Paso, TX

Tu Libro has begun our annual Cesar Chavez fund raiser in an effort to provide 31 home libraries for 31 families in El Paso.  The goal is to gift these 31 libraries on March 31st, Cesar Chavez Day.

Studies have proven that 90% of children who begin reading at a young age, read material they connect with and see a beautiful reflection of their culture on a regular basis – graduate on time, are active participants in their education and later in their communities.

Please support this fund raiser and donate at www.TuLibro915.com/Donate.html

and visit El Paso’s local book stores and publishers for amazing cultural selections.

  1. I’m reading a book on Cesar Chavez and planning a future post about him and Dolores Huerta. It’s embarrassing how little I knew about them. Must have missed their chapters in my school textbooks.

    1. I feel lucky whenever I learn you are planning a post : I know that means that we’ll be getting a depth and scope of info, analysis, vision and passion not easily available elsewhere in the media (with, of course, the exception of some of your intrepid peers)

      blessings, brother.
