Thank you for attending our 50th Anniversary Gala!

We hosted our 50th Anniversary Gala at the Oakland Museum. We recognized our committed staff, board members, community advocates, legal partners, volunteers, elected officials and our supporters who have helped shape our organization and vision to become the premiere legal organization it is today.

Together, we honored the communities that have played a role in the fight for justice. We enjoyed an amazing, moving indigenous ceremonial blessing and performance from group Calpulli Teokalli, congratulatory remarks from Mayor Libby Shaaf, and special recognition from U.S. Representatives Barbara Lee (CA) and Debra Haaland (NM).

We presented Centro Legal’s Spirit Award to former client and current UC Berkeley student, Cristhian Pineda Diaz. Sergio Garcia, Centro Legal Board Member, presented Co-Founder Albert Moreno with our Legacy Award. Watch Albert Moreno here in this wonderful clip by the Fruitvale History Project to learn more about Centro Legal’s formation story and historic roots.

For the past fifty years, we have remained committed to prioritizing human dignity above all else, ensuring we endure as a powerful movement advocating for deep progressive change. We will continue to work with low income, immigrant communities of color to speak against injustice and work with local leaders and fellow advocates to create systems that generate safety, security, dignity, and belonging for all.

We are ready for the next 50 years of advocating for our community.
Please enjoy the photos that captured an unforgettable evening!
