The Department of Latin American Studies is very proud to announce that former LAS major, Zoraida Francis-Reyes, will be honored with the Consuelo Aguilar Esperanza Award at the 3rd Annual Dolores Huerta Luncheon on Tuesday, March 8th, at the Tucson YWCA . The event is hosted by the Arizona César E. Chávez Holiday Coalition with honored guest Dolores Huerta, who is the co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union and one of the most prominent Latina leaders in recent history. Zoraida is one of three women who will be honored for their strong leadership and community engagement. Dr. Raquel Rubio-Goldsmith will be honored with The Dolores Huerta Si Se Puede Legacy Award; Dr. Andrea Romero, (formerly of the UA Mexican American Studies department) will be honored with the Mujer En La Lucha Award. Kudos Zoraida!
