The Solas Awards has always been about coming together and shining a light on the contributions immigrants have been making in our city and region. This year, it is especially important we continue this tradition. Solas 2021 will be an evening of inclusion, learning, and connecting virtually.
Please join us on Wednesday, March 3rd as we mark The Welcoming Center’s 18th anniversary of promoting inclusive economic growth through immigrant integration.
Dennis Clark Solas Award Honoree: Dr. José Ramón Fernández-Peña
