The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) has announced the co-hosts and honorees for the 2024 Impact Awards Gala. Each year, the NHMC honors individuals “making an impact, shifting societal narratives, and setting an example for Latine communities.” The event is on Friday, June 14, 2024, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, and the list is star-studded, even featuring two names that have graced our digital cover this year.

In the NHMC’s words, “The annual celebration honors the incredible contributions of Latine individuals creating a more inclusive society.” “As outspoken advocates for the Latine community, this year’s honorees are paving the way for Latine artists in the entertainment industry, which closely aligns with NHMC’s mission to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward communities of color,” they explained in a press release.

This year’s event will be hosted for the second year by two powerhouse producers, and actresses: Annie Gonzalez and Mayan Lopez. Lopez was our digital cover star in April and is the star of Lopez vs. Lopez, which she produces and stars in alongside her famous father, George Lopez.

When we asked Lopez what her goals are, she told HOLA, “To be able to use my voice to also serve a community that means so much to me, and that has also been ostracized.”
