From The Executive Director
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Executive Director of the Hispanic League since January 2012. My history with the Hispanic/Latino Community began over 20 years ago while working as the executive director of the Association for the Benefit of Child Development (ABCD). I was a part of the first Hispanic Services Coalition, on the Board of Directors for the Hispanic International Action Association and Accíon Hispana. My priority for the Hispanic League is to ensure that the multiple programs and projects we offer receive adequate funding and the recognition to succeed.
We are most grateful for the extraordinary generosity of the many sponsors, partners, and dedicated volunteers that collaborate with the Hispanic League to empower our work in the community and support our signature initiatives of Education, Culture and Community. By never losing sight of our mission, we navigate our way through the ever-changing needs of the Hispanic/Latino community and the different dynamics encountered by families.
Join with us as and share the passion as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary Year and invest in the rapidly growing Hispanic/Latino community. Become a member of the Hispanic League, join a committee and become a volunteer. Make a commitment toward multicultural understanding through participation in Hispanic League sponsored events and activities. Together we can offer a beacon of hope toward changing the lives that will shape and lead our community in the future.
