Rosie Castro is our keynote speaker for the Cesar E. Chavez and Dolores Huerta march originally scheduled for March of 2020. The Cesar Chavez March for Justice event was cancelled due to the COVID19 shutdown of our State. UTSA is honored to welcome Ms. Rosie Castro as our keynote during this Hispanic Heritage Month.
