This year's Building the Beloved Community Gala was El Centro de la Raza's most successful Auction & Awards Gala yet! We raised over $278,000 in much-needed funds to continue strengthening, and growing, our 44 programs and services. This means putting food in the food bank, helping a family make rent and empowering students to graduate high school and attend college.


At the Building the Beloved Community Gala, we celebrated, honored, and looked back on 41 years of El Centro de la Raza, including the many lives that have been impacted by our work. But we also look forward, as the legacy of Roberto Maestas is continued through the awards and scholarships presented that night. Inspired by the work of those who came before us, we look to the future—to the “Beloved Community” as envisioned by Roberto Maestas, especially as the ground-breaking of Plaza Roberto Maestas approaches.
