Club Events

The Avance Democratic Club hosts events that engage, inform, empower and connect. Our goal is to create a space in the public square where issues that are important to Latinos are discussed. Most important, we want to make sure that our members have fun, make new friends, and have the opportunity to make a difference in our community.

  • Chingon Award 2021

    Avance is hosting the Annual Chingon Award on November 15th, 2021, at the iconic Plaza de la Raza in Lincoln Heights.  

    We are proud to announce that our Chingon Award goes to Frank Lima, General Secretary-Treasurer of the International Association of Fire Fighters. Frank V. Lima has dedicated his life to family, firefighting, and organized labor. As a former professional boxer, Los Angeles City fire captain, and grassroots labor leader, he lives by his credo, "UNITE, FIGHT and ORGANIZE." Growing up in Los Angeles, California, Frank Lima has worked three jobs in his life – all union jobs – as a truck driver; a building trades carpenter apprentice, and a firefighter for the Los Angeles City Fire Department (LAFD), which he joined in 1992.  

    The event will be attended by elected officials, labor, and community leaders. Join us and enjoy an evening of music, food, and drinks. Tickets will go on sale on October 10th, 2021.
