Press Release - Michael Sawaya Visits the White House for Cinco de Mayo

Michael Sawaya And Rudy Gonzales Attend The White House Cinco De Mayo Celebration

Michael Sawaya and Rudy Gonzales will be representing Colorado as invite-only dignitaries at the annual Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House in Washington D.C.

Denver, CO May 2, 2014 – The Sawaya Law Firm is proud to announce Michael Sawaya will be attending the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House Rose Garden. Michael will be accompanied by Rudy Gonzales on the trip. They will be representing Servicios de La Raza, as the Board President and Executive Director, respectively.

Sawaya and Gonzales are invited as dignitaries due to their roles with Servicios de La Raza in increasing the Latina voter population. When President Obama was re-elected, Colorado turned out the highest percentage of Latina voters in the nation. This turnout was a very large reason in the re-election of the President, which is especially important due to Colorado being known as a swing state.

During the trip in Washington D.C., Sawaya and Gonzales will be meeting with several federal agencies in order to help provide guidance, resources, and funding to help Servicios de La Raza continue to grow and make an impact in the Colorado Latina community. Both will also be brushing shoulders with plenty of high ranking politicians and public figures, and are set out to spread the word about what they are doing in the community.
