Lichtman an American attorney specializing in women’s rights and an advocate for human and civil rights, Rubén E. Hinojosa the U.S. Representative for Texas's 15th congressional district for his excellence in Government and his fantastic achievements as a leader and advocate, and Maria Contreras-Sweet the 24th and current Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA). Ms. Contreras-Sweet also served as the key note speaker at the event.
