About this Event

PRAA proudly announces its third annual Felisa Rincón de Gautier Distinguished Woman Award. This event was created in 2017 to honor Felisa Rincón de Gautier (1897 –1994) who was the first woman to be elected as the Mayor of a capital city in the Americas. A noted women's rights activist and an active participant in the suffragist movement, Rincón was mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico for 22 years (from 1946 to 1968).

Through the award ceremony and the giving of this annual award -- to three prestigious women each year -- it is PRAA’s goal to heighten and exemplify Ms. Rincon de Gautier's impeccable service and commitment to her community, women, and her country. This award aims to recognize local women for their distinguished community service.

PRAA thanks NBC5/Telemundo & BMO Harris Bank for supporting this event. Special thanks to our organizaiton partner " La Fundacion de Felisa Rincon de Gautier.
