GALA: CELEBRATING PHILANTHROPY CON SABOR LATINO
Our 2019 Gala was an unforgettable evening celebrating the joy of giving con sabor Latino! On this special evening we celebrated the leadership and contributions made by our past, present, and future leaders. We celebrate culture, values, and families! We celebrate and honor the sacrifices that have been made to open doors of access of opportunities for others. This year we are featuring our Latino Legacy Awardee, Aída M. Alvarez; our Leading Change Awardee, Father Greg Boyle; and Nuestro Orgullo Award, Maria Teresa Kumar. See you on May 17th at the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel.
SACRAMENTO LATINO POLICY SUMMIT
The LCF Sacramento Summit has become one of the most sought after events in Sacramento and has brought more than 1,500 Latino leaders and 250 Latino nonprofit organizations to our state’s capitol, many for the first time. In 2019, Summit keynotes included Governor Gavin Newsom Chief of Staff, Ann O’Leary, and State Senator and Vice Chair of the CA Latino Legislative Caucus, Maria Elena Durazo. Following the Summit, LCF organized Legislative Visits at the Capitol for more than 200 Summit attendees and speakers – taking the Summit’s conversation and turning them into action.
