After more than two decades, the NALEO Edward R. Roybal Legacy Gala will be reimagined as the NALEO Edward R. Roybal Legacy Celebration–a departure from the traditional Gala format. While the format of the celebration will be redesigned into a more interactive experience, the event’s purpose is more relevant and significant than ever. The NALEO Edward R. Roybal Legacy Celebration features the presentation of the Edward R. Roybal Award for Outstanding Public Service that was established by NALEO in tribute to the organization’s founder on NALEO’s 20th Anniversary in 1996. Each year, the celebration has paid homage to our founder’s legacy and is rooted in the opportunity to honor an individual who exemplifies the spirit of the Edward R. Roybal Award and ensures that a future generation is inspired by our community’s legacy and its exemplary leaders.
