Please join us Sept. 14 at DC 37 headquarters for a very special Latino Heritage Celebration. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the event is free.
The kick-off will be a cultural presentation by Conjunto Nuevo Milenio, which the Brooklyn Arts Council describes as “a group of dedicated, professional dancers, with a passion and love for Panamanian tradition and the mission to educate the public about the beauty, diversity and richness of its culture.”
We are also honored to have AFSCME Secretary Treasurer Laura Reyes, who previously served as president of California’s United Domestic Workers, as the event’s keynote speaker.
Finally, members will be treated to the sounds of Ray Castro’s Conjunto Clasico, which BBKingblues.com describes as maintaining “the traditions of Puerto Rican influences and that aggressive New York style harmony...The unique sound sets this band apart from all the rest.”
