Roberto Felipe Maestas
life was dedicated to building the “Beloved Community”* through
multi-racial unity, and he deeply believed that poverty, racism and
social inequity could only be eradicated if people of all races and
backgrounds came together to do so.
It is in honor of Roberto and his legacy that the Roberto Felipe Maestas
Legacy Award will recognize two individuals who have exemplified
building the Beloved Community through multi-racial unity, and working
to eliminate poverty, racism and social inequity.
El Centro de la Raza will celebrate them and their contributions by
making a $1,500 gift in their name to an organization of their choice.
These awards made possible by the Marguerite Casey Foundation.
Ten high school students are awarded with the Roberto Felipe Maestas
Legacy Scholarships as well. Each recipient receives a scholarship of
$1,000 to be applied towards post-secondary education in honor of
Roberto’s legacy. These scholarships are made possible by donations to
the Roberto Maestas Scholarship Fund.
