Dear La Colectiva:
I applaud and congratulate your organization for winning The Student Organization Award for the 2013 McKinley Foundation Social Justice Awards.
Your commitment to education and addressing the issues faced by immigrants in the Champaign-Urbana community upholds a true value for social justice and it should be an honor for your organization to receive this award. Continue following the mission your organization was founded on. The impact this organization has on the Champaign-Urbana community is remarkable.
Through your continued involvement with the community, fostering leadership and providing initiatives to the public, whether they agree or disagree, will have factual knowledge about things as the DREAM ACT.
Congratulations on all you have accomplished and I look forward to hearing about continued accomplishments.
