The Board of Directors of the Cal Alumni Club of Washington DC is pleased to invite you to our 2017 Annual Reception.  This year, our event will be held at the historic Arts Club of Washington in Washington, D.C. We will be honoring our 2017 Distinguished Alumnus, Cecilia Muñoz.

Cecilia served as the director of the White House Domestic Policy Council under President Obama for six years. Prior to that, she served as the White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for two years. Before working for the White House, she was senior vice president for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the largest Latino advocacy organization in the United States. At NCLR, she supervised all legislative and advocacy activities conducted by NCLR policy staff. She was also the chair of the board of the Center for Community Change and served on the U.S. programs board of the Open Society Institute and on the boards of directors of the Atlantic Philanthropies and the National Immigration Forum. In 2000, she was named a MacArthur Fellow for her work on civil rights and immigration. She was featured in several episodes of the documentary series How Democracy Works Now: Twelve Stories.

Come enjoy heavy appetizers, an open bar, and the ambiance of an historic private club, centrally located in Washington, D.C.
