Roberto Felipe Maestas Legacy Awards

El Centro de la Raza was founded by Roberto Maestas who dedicated his life to building the “Beloved Community” through multi-racial unity. He deeply believed that poverty, racism and social inequity could only be eradicated if people of all races and backgrounds came together to do so.

It is in honor of Roberto and his legacy that the Roberto Felipe Maestas Legacy Award will recognize two individuals who have exemplified building the “Beloved Community” through multi-racial unity, and working to eliminate poverty, racism and social inequity.

El Centro de la Raza will celebrate them and their contributions by making a $1,000 gift in their name to an organization of their choice. These awards made possible by the Marguerite Casey Foundation.
