What Is The Unsung Soul Award?

Question-mark The idea for this virtual award was concieved as a tribute to Latinos making a difference in our community everyday. It is inspired by two very amazing people in my life. The first is my grandmother, Gloria Delrio who was a dedicated community advocate for the elderly community in Brooklyn for over 30 years before she retired. The second is the late former Young Lord Richie Perez, a community activist that fought against police brutality for people of color…and personally served as a spiritual and political mentor to me since the age of 15.   

Do you know an unsung soul?

Whether that community is the barrio…the suburbs…college…as long as that person or group's actions impacts our people in a positive…they too, may be an Unsung Soul.

If you are interested in nominating an individual or organization for this award please contact us at and let us know why they should be recognized as a Unsung Soul.
