President Barack Obama is campaigning in California today and is expected to attend two private fundraisers in San Francisco.

City residents can jam with Obama at a campaign concert featuring John Legend and Michael Franti at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The concert begins at 5:30 p.m. For details, click here.

Early Monday, Obama will honor the late civil rights activist Cesar Chavez in Keene, California, by designating his home a national monument. Chavez lived in Keene from the 1970s to the early 1990s as he led the farmworkers’ movement. According to CNN:

The Cesar E. Chavez National Monument will become the 398th park in the National Park Service system, and the first since the 1700s to honor a Latino.
