Our "Educating the Heart" program provides a Service Learning & the Arts experience for communities where participants discover their inner Cesar Chavez and learn how to give back to their neighborhood and community.
To produce educational, innovative, artistic programs in the community that embody the core values of Cesar Chavez and foster service to others.
Teatro Nagual brings Let the Eagle Fly back to Sacramento in 2014 to celebrate the legacy of Cesar Chavez. A service learning/performing arts educational program is available.
Lyricist Julie Shannon along with writer John Reeger collaborated with the Chavez family on details and events that bring this story to life.
