Verizon Community Partner Chat: El Centro de la Raza

Verizon's Azmeena Hasham and El Centro de la Raza's Estela Ortegaand

One of the most rewarding aspects of our community engagement work is the opportunity to partner with many non-profit organizations and support innovative programs that help advance the diverse communities we serve.  In May 2020, we launched our Verizon Community Partnerships Initiative to celebrate community organizations supported by Verizon and highlight their important work. 

Today, we feature our conversation with Estela Ortega , Executive Director or El Centro de la Raza, an organization grounded in the Latino community of Washington State. It is the mission of El Centro de la Raza (The Center for People of All Races) to build the Beloved Community through unifying all racial and economic sectors; to organize, empower, and defend the basic human rights of our most vulnerable and marginalized populations; and to bring critical consciousness, justice, dignity, and equity to all the peoples of the world.
