The award will be presented by Jessica Alba (Sin City), who will be joined onstage by Machete’s Tito Larriva and Danny Trejo and Spy Kids’ Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega as part of the special tribute. Lady Gaga, Cheech Marin and George Lopez will also take part in the presentation.

· Outstanding Commitment to Cause and Community Award: CARLOS SANTANA
Music legend Carlos Santana will be recognized for his tireless advocacy for increased access to the arts, education and health care for underprivileged youth, as well as the fight against child poverty. A ten-time Grammy Award® winner and three-time Latin Grammy Award® winner, Santana is an emblem of success and altruism in the Latino community and worldwide.

Executive producer Edward James Olmos and director Michael D. Olmos, along with lead cast members Gina Rodriguez and Lou Diamond Phillips, will be on hand to accept this year’s honor for Special Achievement in Film for the poignant Lionsgate film Filly Brown (2013). An inspiring and gritty portrait of a young artist striving to find her voice and seize her dreams without compromising her values, Filly Brown is propelled by the powerful Latino themes of family, integrity, honor and sacrifice that resonate universally.
