Luis A. Miranda, Jr. has four decades of experience as a leader in the public, private, political, and advocacy sectors. He is the founding partner of the MirRam Group, founding president of the Hispanic Federation, and board chair of the Latino Victory Fund.

Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda is a psychologist/psychoanalyst, whose career has focused on providing services to the underserved in mental health clinics, training physicians in Family Practice Residency Programs, and foster care.

For over 40 years, Luis, Luz, and the Miranda family have championed community activism and Latino/a-led organizations and we honor them for their commitment and dedication to Puerto Ricans across the country.

Dr. Carmen Febo-San Miguel is Executive Director of Taller Puertorriqueño, Pennsylvania’s largest Puerto Rican and Latinx arts organization, and was the force behind El Corazón Cultural Center, a $11.5 million cultural center in the heart of Philadelphia’s Latinx community.

After 22 years at the helm of El Taller, Carmen will be retiring in November 2021 and we are taking this opportunity to honor her contributions to Puerto Rican arts and culture.
