At the annual Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration – which will be held virtually this year – the ACBA presents the El Sol Award to a person who exemplifies distinguished service to the community at large by being an advocate and contributing time and talents toward the betterment of the local Latinx community.
This year’s honoree is Gisele Barreto Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s Second Lady, the wife of Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman. Barreto Fetterman is a Brazilian native and a former undocumented immigrant who now holds one of the most prominent roles in Pennsylvania. She’s an advocate for a number of causes, including women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, the arts and others who have been marginalized.
All ACBA members are encouraged to join this Zoom event and “meet” Pennsylvania’s Second Lady.
