They are the people that make moves, build bridges and make things happen in our community day in and day out. They do it for the love of community and need no thanks. You have watched them grow, build coalitions, effect change, mentor people, create platforms, help the less fortunate, empower others, instill pride and build leaders. They are always there, present to take on the next challenge. If they do not have money, they raise it. If the community has a problem, they solve it. If there is a void, they fill it. When people seem to give up, they push harder.
They are Latino community builders and you have seen the change they inspire.
Isn’t it time we say THANK YOU, for having a positive impact on others?
You can and it is simple… tell us who your neighborhood hero is by nominating them for the 2015 Positive Impact award and help us tell their story to a nation of Latinos looking to be inspired.
