In honor of César Chávez Week, some 40 students from S.B. City College SLAP (Student Labor Action Project) marched on their campus Monday. Rallying in front of the SBCC administration building, SLAP protesters demanded SBCC President John Romo’s support of the equal educational access Dream Act. Speakers Joey Williams, Anayeli Calles, and Shawn Tallant recounted Chávez’s legacy and voiced their opposition to anti-immigration bill HR4437 being considered by the U.S. Senate.
