“I’m inspired by those that turn pain into power, those who can take their joy and share it with others, and by creative expressions that inspire empathy and action.
LP has always been a source of inspiration for me because at the heart of its growth has been a principled desire to help its community thrive. I see LP as an organization that listens to its community and responds to its needs. It is not just a direct service organization, but rather a cultural anchor that empowers a broad cross-section of our community through education and the arts.”
Silvia Rivera is Managing Director of Vocalo. One of the biggest objectives to her work is to engage our community with thoughtful discussion and diverse cultural expressions.
She has given generously of her time and talent, including gracing the MEX talks stage for the first five years as a host/MC, to support our organization’s mission. She’s an integral, inspiring member of our community and we’re truly honored to recognize her as part of our 21st anniversary.
