Anniversary Celebration

Join Chicanos Por La Causa as we celebrate 54 years of empowerment.

Over the last five decades, we have provided shelter to a woman escaping domestic violence. We have helped a father recover from substance abuse so he can sing “Happy Birthday” to his son. We have given a mother the opportunity to find a better job so she can put food on the table—and sit with her family to enjoy it.

We’re proud of our work, but we cannot do it without our donors and supporters.

This year, to celebrate our work and express our gratitude, we are sharing a piece of our cultura with a distinguished group of our sponsors, community leaders, and supporters. We are a community at the border of two distinct countries—and our food reflects who we are: Chicanos.

Please contact us at events@cplc.org for sponsorship opportunities.
