Thanks to the support of our generous Sponsors and Donors, CHIRLA’s 2013 Spring Gala was a big success! Almost 500 community leaders, politicians, advocates, organizations and individuals joined us at the historic Park Plaza in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate our theme of Families Fighting for Reform. The event was covered by Telemundo and Univision.
The evening’s Honorees: Alejandro Mayorkas, Director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS); Congressmember Lucille Roybal-Allard, U.S. Representative for California’s 40th Congressional District; Warehouse Workers United; and CHIRLA’s Families Fighting for Reform represent CHIRLA’s many allies who have won victories for the immigrant community in their fight for progress, justice and acceptance. They have forged new avenues of possibility for workers, students, and our movement as a whole, and we were delighted to recognize the accomplishments of this distinguished group of leaders for our community.
