This past Friday, LICET and our partners at New York Communities for Change were both honored by the Hempstead Hispanic Civic Association for our work building community power across Hempstead through the "People's Platform" for change in the Hempstead School District, and the large non-partisan get out the vote effort LICET led in May.
HHCA and its Executive Director, George Siberón, is one of LICET's closest partners and does tremendous work offering ESL classes and bilingual tutoring, counseling services, recreational activities, and much more for Latino families in Hempstead and beyond. We're honored by the recognition for work that George helped make possible, and looking forward to many more years of partnership to come!
