LA Plaza 2017 Tribute Dinner
Thu, May 25, 2017, 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
Join us for an evening celebrating "Latino Media Pioneers," honoring the Lozano Family and the 90th Anniversary of LA Opinion!
La Opinion was first founded and published on September 16, 1926 by Ignacio E. Lozano, Sr. He emigrated from Mexico to San Antonio, Texas, in 1908, where Lozano first founded a Spanish-language daily newspaper known as La Prensa in 1913. With the increase in the Mexican population Los Angeles experienced during the 1920s, Lozano believed he had a strong base for a Spanish newspaper in the growing city and founded La Opinión on September 16 to coincide with Mexico's Independence Day.
Proceeds from this year’s event support the diverse schedule of free educational programs, exhibitions, and public programs that LA Plaza offers year-round. Last year we were pleased to welcome more than 85,000 visitors, 80 public programs, including 5,000 school children who visited for educational field trips at no cost to the schools.
