The Ibero-American Action League held its annual luncheon on Friday and presented its first State of the Latino community address. 

Ibero’s president Angelica Perez-Delgado says that Ibero’s immediate focus is on improving quality of life for people living in the Northeast corridor of Rochester which has been the scene of an open-air drug market.

Angelica Perez-Delgado's path to CEO and president of the Ibero-American Action League was challenging. And it certainly wasn't something she could imagine was possible for her when she was a young Latina growing up in the North Clinton neighborhood.

The Ibero-American Action League’s new leader has a long connection with the agency.

Angelica Perez-Delgado is the new president and CEO of Ibero. She is succeeding Hilda Rosario Escher, who said earlier this year that she would be stepping down.

Perez-Delgado said that during her youth and early adulthood, Ibero provided her with a lot of support.
