The Mexican American Leadership Initiative (MALI) of the U.S.-Mexico Foundation (USMF) will honor former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at its awards brunch in Los Angeles on Saturday, Nov. 9.
The MALI awards brunch also will serve to preview USMF's upcoming "Shared Destiny Encounter" series, which will be become an annual, binational gathering of leaders from various sectors in Mexico and the U.S. The first Shared Destiny Encounter, featuring Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto, will bring together private and nonprofit CEOs from both countries in Mexico City in early 2014.
MALI is an advocacy and support network founded by USMF in 2010. It serves as a foundation where Mexican-American leaders may contribute to strengthening how American society relates to Mexico, according to its website. Ms. Clinton helped to publicly launch MALI at its first national conference in May 2011. (See her remarks below.)
Ms. Clinton will be honored at an event at the University of Southern California in L.A. from 9 a.m.-noon. Also in attendance will be former U.S. Cabinet members Henry Cisneros and Carlos Gutierrez, as well as ImpreMedia CEO and La Opinión publisher Monica Lozano. The event is sold out.
