ABC7 Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month 2016

ALAS - Ayudando Latinos A Soñar Ayudando Latinos A Soñar (ALAS, which means 'wings' in Spanish) is the first Latino cultural arts nonprofit on the Coastside of Half Moon Bay. Founded by Belinda Hernandez Arriaga, ALAS aims to strengthen the rural Latino community by shining the spotlight on the wealth of rich cultural history of the families and children that live on the Coast. ALAS helps to develop the talents of local youth through the cultural arts of Ballet Folklorico, Mariachi Education and has inspired an educational tutoring and social justice program that wraps services around the children to support them and their families. ALAS youth have danced for Dolores Huerta (pictured here with Belinda Hernandez and ALAS dancers), sang and performed for Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán of Mexico, raised scholarship funds performing for the first undocumented scholarship at University of San Francisco and regularly support local community events.
