SOMOS JUNTA 50th Anniversary Gala | Amarante's Sea Cliff | samedi, 21. septembre 2019

Junta for Progressive Action is celebrating our 50th year of advancing Latino communities on September 21, 2019. This year, Junta is re-imagining our gala.  We are celebrating our history and heritage by commissioning four new awards honoring four leaders who like Junta are committed to the advancement of all Latino communities across Connecticut. Embracing our history, the four new awards are named after the four principal founders of Junta for Progressive Action. In addition to the gala dinner and awards ceremony, we are adding a concert fundraiser to the evening. This year Latin Heartbeat Orchestra with special guest Josean Rivera will host a concert immediately following the gala.
The first recipients of our newly commissioned awards are Rafael Ramos, Founder of Bregamos Community Theater; Alicia Caraballo, Community and Education Activist; Danny Diaz, Co-Founder of ARTE, Inc.; and Adriana Rodriguez, Executive Director of Spanish Community of Wallingford. 
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM Gala Dinner
9:00 PM to Midnight Concert Fundraiser
