An Evening of Enlightening Conversations
As the night unfolded, guests engaged in enriching dialogues that highlighted the vibrancy of Hispanic history and culture. Conversations flowed seamlessly from the challenges faced by the Hispanic community to their unparalleled contributions to the American tapestry.
