The Mama Leo 
Latinx Lecture Series

The Mama Leo Latinx Lecture Series honors the Puerto Rican spiritual leader, the Reverend Leoncia Rosado Rousseau, known to many as Mama Leo. This lecture series will be held annually to recognize the unconventional and pragmatic leader’s dedication and years of service by focusing on Latinx ministry and social justice. Fundraising efforts to endow the lecture series with $150,000 that will sustain it for years to come are underway. Make a gift at any level or consider becoming an event sponsor.
