Day Three Highlights of the 2015 NCLR Annual Conference

The eyes of the nation were on the 2015 NCLR Annual Conference today as three presidential candidates delivered remarks to our attendees. The much-anticipated speeches were given to max-capacity crowds. Below are highlights from day three of our 2015 annual gathering.

The first candidate to deliver remarks was Bernie Sanders, who gave a speech to a standing-room only crowd in a special session.

After Sanders’ speech, it was on to the Monday Luncheon where attendees were treated to a special performance by our favorite mariachi singer, Sebastien De La Cruz.

Our Vice President of Policy, Eric Rodriguez, also gave our Affiliate Award for Advocacy to to Luz Gallegos of Todec Legal Center.

Next, our guests heard from Democratic presidential candidate and former Maryland governor, Martin O’Malley.

Next, guests heard remarks from Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro.

Following Secretary Castro, our attendees heard from Sprint CEO, Marcelo Claure, who shared his truly inspiring immigrant story.

While attendees waited for Hillary Clinton to arrive, they were treated to more of the musical stylings of Sebastien De La Cruz.

After some tantalizing tunes, it was time for former Secretary of State Clinton to take the stage.
