Chicanos Por La Causa is recognizing Leonardo Loo with its 2023 Cause for Change Award.

Inspired by his unwavering commitment to excellence, service, and community engagement, Mr. Loo serves as an example for others, including Latinos and Asian Americans, as he advocates to empower others throughout the community, officials at Chicanos Por La Causa contend.

“Working together, Leonardo and Chicanos Por La Causa, have helped build stronger communities and paved the way for other business leaders to make an impact in the communities in which they operate,” said Alicia Nuñez, Interim president and CEO of Chicanos Por La Causa. “We are a better, stronger organization because of leaders like Leonardo who are committed to empowering lives.”

Mr. Loo, a former Chicanos board chair, is a partner at Quarles & Brady, and a member of the firm’s governing executive committee. The Cause for Change Award honors distinguished leaders who have made significant contributions to the community. Former honorees include activist and actor Dolores Huerta, comedian Cheech Marin, and Arizona’s first Hispanic congressman Ed Pastor.

“Chicanos Por La Causa and I share a common goal to provide opportunities for everyone to grow and succeed. We recognize that empowering individuals starts with investing in and serving the people in our communities,” Mr. Loo said in a prepared statement. “During my time as a CPLC Board Chair, I saw the decades of legacy and advocacy within the CPLC family. I am honored to continue this legacy that honors our roots for a better future as a 2023 Cause for Change honoree.”

Chicanos Por La Causa has grown to be one of the largest nonprofits in the country since forming in 1969 by a small group of Arizona students and activists. Today, CPLC has over 30 programs in health and human services, education, housing, economic development, and advocacy that impact more than 2 million lives across the Southwest.
