During the 60s and into the 70s it was a time for social change. Young Chicanos and Chicanas were making waves in a fight for opportunity in higher education. At the height of this movement young activists in Denver, Boulder, Northern Colorado and many other areas were organizing to move the needle on college enrollment, and in doing so some paid the ultimate price with their lives. This year we honor the Chicano/a student activist movement and recognize the work that continues today.

We hope you will join us and consider sponsoring this time honored and extremely prestigious Denver event. Sponsorships are customizable to promote your company or organization. Sponsorship levels start at $3,500 and go up to $25,000. There are also table sponsorships available for $1,700 and individual seats at $170.
