Thank you to all our guests, generous sponsors, community partners, and donors for attending the Latino Community Fund Annual Gala! Thank you to our board of directors for sharing of your talents and resources. Muchisimas gracias to the dedicated staff of LCF, who carry the values of racial equity into all the work we do for collective power and impact. We appreciate you all for attending our special event, you make it possible for us to continue our mission of cultivating new leaders, supporting cultural and community based non-profit organizations, and improving the quality of life for all Washingtonians. 

We had a wonderful evening celebrating the many brave stories of local leaders who are making significant contributions to the community. Congratulations again to Guillermo Mogollan on receiving the 2018 Community Leadership Award! Guillermo is a 2018 alumnus of the University of Washington-Seattle. As an undergraduate, Mogollan, completed 9 internships with progressive organizations that included SEIU Healthcare 1199NW, the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, and the Latino Community Fund of Washington State. In 2017, he managed Burien Councilmember Pedro Olguin’s electoral campaign, and helped elect the Burien Fantastic 4. Currently, Mogollan is a field organizer for the 2018 Washington State Democrats Coordinated Campaign. The Latino Community Fund thanks Guillermo for his leadership in the Alianza Youth Fellows program, work on the Equity and Environment Initiative, and his many contributions to the community.

Many thanks to our emcee David Espinosa-Hall (@tvdavidtv) and keynote speaker Julio Ricardo Varela from Latino Rebels for inspiring us all to get involved in our community and take action! Julio and our wonderful lineup of speakers reminded us that through the power of our collective voices we can create the change we wish to see. United we can make a difference, help us to continue our work of cultivating new leaders like Guillermo, Hispanic Seafair recipients, or Latinos in Tech leaders, join us and sign-up today to take action! You too can be a part of this movement by connecting with us on social media (@lcfwa), donating to LCF, supporting Alianza Youth Fellows, or volunteering to help us mobilize first-time voters. With your contribution, together we can cultivate and activate leaders for collective power for racial equity.
