Every year Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center honors two people who are committed to advocating for immigrant rights in the Borderland. This year, we will be honoring El Paso County Judge Veronica Escobar and Reverend Dr. Robert Mosher. In addition to honoring our Border Heroes, we'll be celebrating our 30th Anniversary with delicious food by Around the World Catering and lively music from Carombola during an uplifting evening.
