Celebrating 20 years of Latino youth reaching their highest potential.
Fueling the next 20 years of Latino youth realizing their dreams of a bright future.

Celebración 20, held on September 26, 2019, was a night to remember – and one that would not have been possible without the generous support of every single one of our friends and sponsors.

It was an honor to be able to recognize our awardees – Candace Kattar, Cecilia Muñoz, and Neighbors Rising – and especially moving to be reminded of the ways that they have profoundly impacted the lives of those in our community, and beyond.

Thank you to the entire Identity community for coming together to celebrate 20 years of Latino youth reaching their highest potential. We could not have asked for a more energizing start to the next 20 years of Latino youth realizing their dreams than Celebración 20.
