UCLA Medal Ceremony Celebrating The Hon. Esteban E. Torres, Former U.S. Representative from California
Please join us for the virtual UCLA Medal ceremony honoring Esteban E. Torres. The UCLA Medal is the highest honor for extraordinary accomplishment that may be bestowed upon an individual by UCLA. Torres championed labor rights throughout his professional career, first through his work with the UAW and then in the US House of Representatives, where he was the member for California’s 34th congressional district from 1983 until he retired in 1999. Following his retirement, Torres went on to serve on the California Transportation Commission, the National Latino Media Coalition, and on numerous Boards. The ceremony will include remarks from Congressman Torres, as well as UCLA chancellor Gene Block, Institute of American Cultures vice provost David Yoo, and CSRC director Chon A. Noriega, plus several civic leaders. The event is hosted by the UCLA Office of the Chancellor, the IAC, and the CSRC.
