SCC 12th Annual Beacon of Light Awards Ceremony
This is an important event that highlights immigrant achievements and contributions. In the current social climate immigrants are scapegoated and on the receiving end of harmful policies and hate speech. This has been a difficult year, so it’s even more critical to focus on the positive and send different messages about our immigrant residents by recognizing their important role in building and transforming our local communities. Local immigrant artists will also display their work and guests are invited to weave our immigrant tapestry into a remarkable wall art.
Our outstanding 2019 awardees are:
i. Cindy Avitia Lifetime Achievement: Father Jon Pedigo
ii. Beacon of Light: Beth Chance – Santa Clara County Public Defender
iii. Beacon of Light: Almaz Negash - African Diaspora Network
iv. Beacon of Light: Santa Clara County Rapid Response Network
