Thirtieth Annual NCLR Capital Awards Honors Mayor Martin J. Walsh of Boston, Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles and Republican Strategist Ana Navarro

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—This evening in the nation’s capital, NCLR (National Council of La Raza) President and CEO Janet Murguía honored elected leaders and community advocates during the 30th Annual Capital Awards Gala, a ceremony that recognizes elected officials who promote policies and legislation that positively impact the Latino community. The 2017 Capital Awards were presented to Mayor Martin J. Walsh of Boston and Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles for their efforts to promote the safety and unity of all families in the face of anti-immigrant threats. Both Mayor Walsh and Mayor Garcetti demonstrated the power of true leadership when they immediately opposed an executive order aimed at ramping up deportations and cultivating an atmosphere of fear and division in their communities.
