SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Children at schools across the city spent the day learning about community service, from the example of Cesar Chavez.
Volunteers from IUSB branched out across dozens of classrooms, in five different schools, including at Muessel Primary Center.
They read to students about the legacy of Cesar Chavez, an American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist.
Kids learned how Chavez and his family sacrificed, and how he co-founded the National Farm Workers Association.
The effort is organized by the American Democracy project of Indiana University South Bend.
On Sunday, university students honored Chavez by working in the Potawatomi Garden.
