LUPE Fund is celebrating sixteen years of educating, empowering and engaging Latinas to promote leadership and civic engagement in New Jersey. The organization hosts its annual Power of Women reception to honor powerful community leaders whose unwavering support, commitment and civic involvement have contributed to creating greater opportunities for Latinas in New Jersey.
This year, LUPE Fund will honor Peggy Anastos – Power of Women Award, Kim Smith – Amiga Award and Brendan Gill – Amigo Award.
In addition to honoring community leaders, LUPE Fund will announce the selection of four college students to receive the 2019 Young Latina Leadership Scholarship awards. The scholarships are awarded to distinguished young women who are committed to academic excellence and exemplify leadership within their communities. The 2019 scholarships have been made possible through the generous contributions from Zulima V. Farber, Gilda Morales, Michelle Adubato and Carlos Lejnieks.
