Raza Visions, a fundraiser for the organization on May 24, 2019 from 6 pm -12 am.
With the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Centro approaching in 2021 we are envisioning new approaches to public engagement, historic preservation as well as new collaborations with artists.
The event is a kickoff for a prolonged fundraising effort that will take place online and is intended to help push these new projects forward.
The Centro has been deeply embedded into the fabric of multiple generations of our community for the last 50 years. Are you and your family somehow connected to Centro Cultural de la Raza or has your life been impacted by it? Let’s tell all those stories! Share one by posting an old or recent photo or text online or come to the Centro Friday, May 24th 6-11 pm and we’ll get it on camera for you!
Make sure to use #centrostories with your posts so we can add them to our living archive which will be debuted at the Raza Visions event!

We welcome you to visit the Centro and invite you to participate in the exciting programs.
