    Last Adelitas mission statement: “Our organization is rooted in the ideals of community building and community investment. We support programs that advance Latina issues and our community. We organize and mentor young Latinas to learn about the political process, empower them to get involved in political campaigns, and encourage them to consider running for elected office someday.”

    “Please join Las Adelitas Arizona for an evening of entertainment, food and celebration as we honor Mona Grijalva as the 2016 Adelita del Año for her decades of service to the community and raise funds for the annual Dr. Maria Teresa Velez Scholarship.

    Tickets are $20 general admission or $10 for students. All ticket and silent auction proceeds will go to benefit the 2017 scholarship program and to promote the mission of LAAZ to support candidates and issues important to Latinas and our families. Join us!”

    Carolyn’s note:  Ramona Grijalva is wife to CD 3 Congressman Raul Grijalva, and mother to TUSD Governing Board President Adelita Grijalva.
