Trailblazers Honored at Latino History Luncheon
AL DÍA History Luncheon
In an effort to honor the impact and success that Latinos often have on the community, AL DIA News honored 5 community leaders at the Latino History Luncheon. And while the contributions of Latino leaders often doesn’t get acknowledged in the mainstream, the event took the occasion of Hispanic Heritage Month to do just that.
The sold out event took place at the historic Union League of Philadelphia and acted as an opportunity for leaders in various sectors to get recognition for their commitment to service and accomplishments along the way.
The honorees at the event were: Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Pedro Cortes, Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera, Executive Director of Norris Square Civic Association Patricia DeCarlo, Nelson Diaz, and President and CEO of Global Bilingual Solutions Karla Narvaez.
The honorees made a series of comments all in support of not only each other but also in recognition of the services they provide to their communities as a whole.
