Austinites walked alongside Paul Chavez, son of civil rights leader Cesar Chavez, at this year’s “Si Se Puede!” March on Saturday, which started at the Terrazas Library and ended at the steps of City Hall with speeches, music and entertainment.

Austin American-Statesman reporter James Barragan wrote about how the march tied current issues to the labor leader’s fight.
