Sylvia Puente Honored!

Sylvia Puente, President & CEO of Latino Policy Forum, a W. Clement & Jessie V. Stone Foundation grantee, has been recognized by the Consul General of Mexico in Chicago with a 2020 Ohtli Award.

The Ohtli award is presented every year by the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Relations through the Mexican Consular Network since 1996. The name “Ohtli” is a Nahuatl word which means “path”, alluding to the idea of opening a path for others. The Ohtli Award recognizes individuals who have aided, empowered, or positively affected the lives of Mexican nationals in the United States and other countries. Sylvia is an extraordinary example of a true fighter who has dedicated her career to shedding light on the struggles of the Latino community. 

We congratulate Sylvia on this recognition. Recently Sylvia was interviewed by WBEZ on the voting patterns of Latinos in the 2020 Presidential Election.
