Thank You for Your Support
Thank you to everyone who supported CHIRLA’s Women Leading Change Reception and Holiday Marketplace on Saturday!
Despite the cold and rainy weather, over 100 people came out to Homegirl Café to enjoy great food, community, and holiday shopping with CHIRLA. With your help, we raised over $15,000 for our worker education programming for women and celebrated the accomplishments of our inspiring honorees.
We are grateful to Sister Virginia Maria Joseph, Cynthia Anderson-Barker, and Esther Partida Vasquez for allowing us to honor them, and also thank our presenters Los Angeles City Councilmember Jan Perry; Lizette Escobedo, NALEO Educational Fund; CHIRLA Members Sonia Murietta and Virginia Francisco; and Vannia de la Cuba, City of Pasadena District 5 Field Representative.
