LULAC To Honor Its 'Champions'

Washington, DC –The League of United Latin American Citizens will honor Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana, Congressman Pedro Pierluisi of Puerto Rico and Texas State Representative Trey Martinez Fischer of San Antonio at its 14th Annual National Legislative Awards Gala on February 10th at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C. In addition, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski and Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Charlie Gonzalez will speak at the event.

“LULAC is proud to honor these outstanding legislators who have championed key issues important to Latinos,” said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. “We look forward to thanking them for their efforts to pass the DREAM Act, increase access to healthcare, expand educational opportunities and defend our civil rights.”

Daniel Hernandez, Jr. the intern whose quick actions helped save Congresswoman Gabriella Gifford’s life will receive a special recognition during the Gala. Satcha Pretto, the host of Univision Network’s weekend newsmagazine “Primer Impacto Extra” will be the Mistress of Ceremonies.

The gala begins with a reception at 6 pm followed by the awards program at 7 pm and dinner at 8 pm. 

The awards gala caps off LULAC’s two-day legislative conference which provides Latino leaders from across the country the chance to strategize on legislative priorities for the Latino community and visit with their elected members of Congress and senior administration officials. On February 9th the conference begins at 9:30 am with a series of workshops including: What’s in Store for Hispanic Students, New Opportunities for Addressing Poor Health Outcomes in Latino Children and Effective Latino Advocacy Strategies.

A luncheon at 12:00 pm that day will address Improving Latino Broadband Access and features Anna M. Gomez Deputy Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information and Deputy Administrator for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration and FCC Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn. On Thursday, attendees will meet with their elected representatives and visit federal agencies during the LULAC Advocacy Day.

The League of United Latin American Citizens, the largest and oldest Hispanic membership organization in the country, advances the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating through 880 LULAC councils nationwide.
