2019 

BEN HELLER AWARD RECIPIENT : The Matsui Foundation

VOLUNTEER HERO AWARD : La Plaza Bakery

Just one fundraising event a year, and for 2019 it should be particularly wonderful! The Center for Community Advocacy’s 24th annual “Dia de Los Muertos” tardeada (afternoon party) will take place Sunday, October 27th at 4:30 pm to honor this year’s recipient of CCA’s Ben Heller Award and Volunteer Hero Award Recipient.

As always, the Center for Community Advocacy has much to celebrate. We have completed yet another year of training farm workers in leadership roles that enable them to negotiate with their landlords for improvements in their housing units. Those same skills have empowered these farm worker leaders to become purveyors of preventive health information at their housing sites and teach farm worker how they can help themselves. Talk about a challenge, but we are ready for it!
