MARCH FOR FREEDOM CONCERT

Oak Lawn Band held its belated 40th Anniversary Concert, Mixtape, on June 11, 2022, at the Latino Cultural Center.  Mixtape is part of the Oak Lawn Band's  March for Freedom concert series which highlights community calls for action and seeks to shine a spotlight on the efforts of community heroes.  For 2022 , the Oak Lawn Band looked at efforts by community members to serve the local LGBTQIA+ community and its intersection with the band.     

The 2021-2022 Pillar of Freedom recipients were Melissa Grove for her work with Legacy Cares, John Horany for his long time support of the community and the band, and Miranda Rodriguez for her leadership of the band during the pandemic.
