Noel Marquez, Charlene Hernandez, Leroy Ukenstine and Diego Hernandez march at the Roswell Museum and Art Center Thursday afternoon. The group handed out educational materials and walked around to collect signatures for their petition to name the under-construction Roswell Recreation and Aquatic Center after Chávez, a Hispanic civil rights activist known for his work to help farm laborers. Charlene Hernandez is a member of League of United Latin American Citizens and said the organization supports this effort. (Alison Penn Photo)
