Colorado Latino Hall of Fame

The stories of Latino Leadership have often gone untold when studying Colorado’s rich history. From building communities and businesses, to leading in the public sector, the Latino footprint in Colorado is undeniable. In 2016, the Institute created the Colorado Latino Hall of Fame to share the stories of Latinos who changed lives, built enterprises, and brought hope to neighborhoods and communities across our state. To publicly share their stories, the LLI hosts an annual Gala to officially induct these Latino luminaries.


Over the past several years, we have recognized the many contributions of Latino leaders throughout Colorado’s history because you have shared their stories with us. Nominate an extraordinary Latino leader today, joining our efforts to honor our past and inspire future generations. The nomination deadline is March 17.
