Nominate Your Award Candidate Today!

The YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley is still accepting nominations for the Racial Justice Award, to be presented at this year’s 13th Annual Women for Racial Justice Breakfast, held at the Pasadena Hilton Hotel. On Monday, October 12, 2015, the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley will host the 13th Annual Women for Racial Justice Breakfast. The event is scheduled from 7 – 9 a.m. and will be held at the Pasadena Hilton Hotel, located at 168 S. Los Robles Ave. in Pasadena.

This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize a woman, business or organization that has actively been working to end racism and further racial harmony and inclusiveness. Nominees must reside in the Pasadena-Foothill Valley region and are speaking out against racism and encouraging racial justice and interracial understanding. Previous awardees include Lorna Touryan Miller (2014), Dr. Jacqueline Jacobs (2013) and the National Hispanic Media Coalition (2012).

If you would like to nominate an individual, business or organization, please contact Jessica Kubel, Associate Director, at (626) 296-8433, or via email at jkubel@ywca-pasadena.org. Nomination forms can also be found at the YWCA website: www.ywca-pasadena.org. Nominations must be received no later than Friday, July 31, 2015, by 5 p.m.

This year, our keynote speaker will be Angelica Salas, Executive Director of the Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights Los Angeles (CHIRLA). Since becoming CHIRLA’s director in 1999, Salas has spearheaded and won several ambitious campaigns. She helped win in-state tuition and access to financial aid for immigrant students, and most recently helped win driver’s licenses for the undocumented community in California. She is a prominent figure in ethnic and mainstream press and is often quoted on all of the issues related to immigrant well-being.

For more information about the Women for Racial Justice Breakfast, please contact the YWCA at (626) 296-8433, or email jkubel@ywca-pasadena.org.
