Honored to Receive the Romero Vive Award

I was honored to be recognized last night in San Francisco with the Romero Vive award by the Central American Resource Center (CARECEN), an organization that advocates on behalf of Central American and all immigrants. The award celebrates the life and work of Monsignor Oscar Romero, slain archbishop of San Salvador, whose defense of human rights and advocacy of social justice provides the inspiration for the CARECEN. My friend Jose Padilla, Executive Director of California Rural Legal Assistance, was also honored with a Romero Vive award for his work which embodies Monsignor Romero's legacy.
