Coro’s mission is to strengthen the democratic process by preparing individuals for effective and ethical civic leadership. For over 75 years, Coro has trained thousands of leaders in cross-sector, nonpartisan, collaborative problem-solving, with alumni serving in every sector and in all professions. 

Every year, we recognize visionary leaders for their transformative impact in and across Southern California at our Annual Crystal Eagle Awards Gala. This year, we’re celebrating the Gala in two parts. We just wrapped up the first part of the celebration with our May virtual Gala. Thank you to everyone who supported and attended the event! 

The second part of the celebration, Cocktails with Coro, is on September 23rd. We’ll be hosting an exclusive limited capacity gathering* at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood with our honorees, event supporters, and civic community.

Hope to see you there!
