In the words of José Antonio Tijerino, President, and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation,   “The Hispanic Heritage Foundation is privileged to honor Gael García Bernal with the Vision Award for his tremendous talents but most importantly for serving as a role model and advocate for the Latin community,”.

He added that next September 14th, “The evening will be entertaining, meaningful and inspirational as we present America with the great value Latinos provide.  It’s more important than ever to showcase visionary Latinos like Gael.”

Former recipients include opera star, Placido Domingo, novelists, Junot Díaz and Isabel Allende, as well as late Hollywood actor Anthony Quinn, among others.
