On August 22, 2017,   the Los Angeles City Employees Chicano Association held its scholarship  awards presentation to honor three LACECA family members with scholarships.   The scholarship recipients were Riana Mejia,  niece of member Lupe Durazo, Personnel Department;  Jennifer Mendiaz, niece of member Jeannette Romo,  Department of Water and Power;  Nadine Murillo, daughter of  member Irma Gonzalez, Personnel Department.   You can view the photos in the Gallery.

Selection of the finalists is based on outstanding achievements, achievements in school and community activities and financial need.    

            LACECA wishes you all much success  in your future

Sail on a Tall Ship


LACECA Member, you are cordially invited for a 3 to 4 hour boat ride on the July or August day of your choice.  Suggested donation is $10 for a single, $20 for a couple, or $40 for a family.  Teenage children may join the activity.  This is an outreach to increase environmental awareness (PM sails) and let you sample this social justice program (AM sails) in case you or your teenager want to volunteer to help crew the tall ship and mentor youth groups in the future.  You can volunteer to work the tall ship on a weekend voyage to Catalina Island.  Space is limited and sold out on the June sail, so RSVP ASAP.  First come,  first served.

Thank you for your support

Lupe Durazo, LACECA President and sailing coordinator
