The AMV Foundation is striving to create a culture of peace, acceptance, mutual respect and harmony. Together we can build an inclusive, peaceful and beloved nation for us, our kids and their kids.

The event probably was the appropriate occasion to present AMV’s Lifetime Community Builder Award to Alberto Carrillo Sr. for his distinguished services to the community as an official of the Santa Clara County. The Mayor of Palo Alto, Patrick Bert gave the award to Alberto on behalf of the AMV.
