Canon Lydia Lopez continues to inspire the work that EPIC is carrying on with our immigrant community in Los Angeles. She was appointed Canon of the Diocese of Los Angeles of the Episcopal Church in recognition of her life-long commitment to faith-based justice work with the immigrant community in our city.
Although her life transitioned on January 16th, her story, legacy and commitment to faith-based justice continues to inspire all communities of spirituality, solidarity and struggle today. We send love to her family and we will continue honoring her memory.
We are grateful that we were able to celebrate her with the Canon Lydia Lopez Award at our first annual EPIC Gala last August. Due to health reasons, she did not attend the ceremony in person but you can see the video presentation by CLICKING HERE. Please save the date for our 2nd annual EPIC Gala on August 26th where we will continue to honor leaders in our community with the Canon Lydia Lopez EPIC Award.
