The Southwest Michigan Cesar E. Chavez Committee began awarding the Tri-community Award in 2007 to a community advocate who demonstrates the ideals of justice and equality. In 2014, the committee began to formally recognize more individuals in the community with the Dolores Huerta Social Justice award, given to an individual who advocates primarily for women and children, and the Cesar E. Chavez Social justice award, given to an individual or organization who demonstrates leadership in support of the Hispanci community of Southwest Michigan.
