Sponsor Shout-Out

Muchas Gracias!

Much gratitude to our esteemed ALX100 sponsors whose unwavering support and boundless generosity make this year-long celebration possible. Thank you for being the driving force behind our success.

When Latinx kids don’t see themselves represented on stage or film or television or newspapers or history textbooks, what they’re told is, ‘You don’t matter. But when they see themselves represented, then they are told … ‘You are important. You are authors. You are scientists. You are explorers. You are special. You are leaders. You are respected.

You are the reason we are here.

— John Leguizamo | Actor & Film Producer
