Who Are You: Identity, Happiness & Excellence
A workshop with Dr. Cesar A. Cruz
From marching 76-straight miles, to hunger striking for 26 days, César has dedicated his life to fighting for justice.
He has been an educator for 23 years, most recently serving as the Dean of Secondary Schools Program at Harvard University. He co-founded the independent school, Making Changes, out of his home, and has sought to create autonomous education spaces. For the last four years, he has overseen the Homies Empowerment Program serving gang impacted/involved youth in Oakland, CA. He is the author of two books, Revenge of the Illegal Alien, and Bang for Freedom. He received his doctorate in Educational Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, becoming the first Mexican immigrant male to do so.
Amidst all, he is proudest to be a husband, and father of three children: Olin, Amaru and Quetzali.
