Latino Civic & Cultural Center celebrates its grand opening in Burien
The Grand Opening of the new Latino Civic & Cultural Center (LCA) was celebrated March 31 at 445 152nd SW. The event was also an opportunity to observe and honor Cesar Chavez Day.
The center, the first of its kind in the State of Washington means that the Latino community can learn about the civil rights movement in the state and recognizes its past and present leaders, civic education, and engagement, and Latino culture and heritage.
In addition, the LCA plans to add a recording arts studio for the youth and community to use. The center will also serve as a hub for the community to bring leaders together and build stronger partnerships all over Washington State.
The event featured a special program that began with the land recognition and an opening by Tenor Jose Iniguez and additional live music performances by Mariachi Fiesta Mexicano, Folklore Mexicana Tonantzin Dancers, and Los Relucientes del Norte.
Guests were able to contribute to the Latino Civic & Cultural Center by purchasing tickets for several items that were donated. In addition, individual or corporate contributions are appreciated.
