The U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is proud to honor Edward James Olmos, at this year's 2023 USHCC National Conference Awards Gala on the evening of Tuesday, September 26, 2023, in Orlando, Florida!
Olmos will be honored for his longstanding leadership, advocacy, commitment to the elevation and appreciation of the Latino culture throughout his career and body of work.
He stands as a living legend in our community, both on and off the screen, with an unwavering commitment to preserving and promoting our rich Latino culture. His lifelong dedication to amplify Latino voices through his artistry, activism, and numerous business endeavors, such as establishing the Latino Public Broadcasting and passion in seeing literacy thrive in underserved communities, reflects only a small part of why he is a cherished leader.
His efforts have significantly contributed to fostering inclusivity in the entertainment industry and worldwide. This award holds a special significance, especially during the ongoing guild strikes to which we are in complete solidarity.
