The Oregon Hispanic Bar Association 2017 Sponsor Information

The Oregon Hispanic Bar Association (OHBA) is currently seeking sponsors to contribute financially to help the organization carry out its activities and further its mission in 2017. Sponsors are recognized on the OHBA web site during the entire 2017-year, not just at a single event (although special recognition will be given at the OHBA's Annual Award Dinner). Benefits of the OHBA sponsorship packages are described below.

The OHBA represents the voice of Latinos in Oregon's legal community. The OHBA's mission is to:

  • Encourage Latinos to serve in the law;
  • Retain Latino legal professionals;
  • Support and mentor Latino law students and legal professionals;
  • Promote advancement of Latino legal professionals;
  • Raise awareness of Latino legal issues in the community;
  • Collaborate with other organizations that serve the Latino community on legal issues; and
  • Provide social networking and mentoring opportunities.

The OHBA will present the following awards at our 11th Annual Award Dinner on February 17, 2017 at the Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland.

The Paul J. De Muniz Professionalism Award

Each year the OHBA honors an individual who elevates the practice of law by a combination of professionalism, contributions to the justice system, public service, and dedication to the Latino community.

The OHBA is honoring Yesenia Gutierrez as the 2017 awardee. Ms. Gutierrez is the Director of Equal Opportunity and Deputy Title IX Coordinator at Oregon State University. She previously worked with Legal Legal Aid Services of Oregon and Disability Rights Oregon, and served on the Family Services Review Commission to advise the Department of Human Services on its goals and priorities.

La Voz Latina Award

The OHBA selects an organization as recipient of this award in order to recognize that organization's exceptional service to Oregon's Latino community.

The OHBA is honoring El Programa Hispano Católico (EPHC) as the 2017 awardee. EPHC provides a wide array of social services to low-income Latinos in the Portland metro area, and has worked to empower elevate community members and has seen many successes since 1982. EPHC partners with the most vulnerable community members to navigate personal steps to success using a strengths based approach rooted in Latino culture.
