As part of the 2018-19 Diversity Signature Series, DePaul will host the 2018 Dolores Huerta Prayer Breakfast Celebration on Wednesday, Sept. 26. This annual gathering of the campus community honors the life and legacy of activist Dolores Heurta and celebrates the cultural heritage of Latinx communities. The event is free and open to all members of the university community.
Juan Andrade, Jr., president and executive director of the U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute, will deliver the keynote address at this year’s breakfast. Under his direction, the Institute has trained 200,000 present and future leaders, registered two million new voters and published 425 studies on Hispanic demographics. Andrade also is the recipient of a Presidential Medal, presented by President Bill Clinton for his performance of exemplary deeds of service for the nation. In 2011, he received the National Ohtli Award, the highest honor presented by the people and government of Mexico, for his distinguished service to the Mexican and Mexican-American community in the U.S.
