We are thrilled to announce that the Hispanic Bar Association of the District of Columbia has named Esperanza a 2010 recipient of the Hugh A. Johnson, Jr. Memorial Award. This award is presented annually to an individual and an organization who have exemplified outstanding contributions to the Latino community of Greater Washington in the areas of equality, fairness and social justice; over the years, some of the capital region’s top charitable and philanthropic organizations have received this award. Esperanza will be honored at HBA-DC’s annual Equal Justice Awards Reception on Thursday, November 4 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Update: Next Thursday, October 21, HBA-DC, the South Asian Bar Association of D.C., and the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of D.C. will host a joint happy hour with Esperanza at Lupe Cantina (1214A 18th St. NW, just south of Dupont Circle) from 6:00 to 8:00pm. Mark your calendars!
