We are thrilled to announce that Mo Hyman, our esteemed Leadership Council Chair, represented the City of Pasadena at Congresswoman Judy Chu's Congressional Women of the Year Award Ceremony on April 13, 2024. This esteemed award celebrates remarkable women who have made significant contributions to Rep. Chu's 28th Congressional District. Mo's unwavering commitment to equity and access has left an indelible mark on our community, and we are delighted to see her dedication recognized publicly.  

In her role as the Leadership Council Chair of Collaborate Pasadena, Mo has played a pivotal role in advancing our organization's mission of removing systemic barriers and ensuring equitable access to resources for students and families throughout the greater Pasadena region.


Additionally, as the Executive Director of College Access Plan, Mo has led initiatives aimed at breaking down barriers and empowering underserved and underrepresented students to excel in higher education. CAP’s advocacy was instrumental in the civil rights action that led to the discontinuation of entrance exams for admissions and scholarships at the University of California, making California an SAT/ACT-free state for all public universities. 

Mo's visionary leadership and tireless advocacy have transformed countless lives and driven systemic change. We congratulate Mo on this well-deserved honor and commend her for her exemplary contributions to our community.
