Where /who does the $20,000.00 award come from?

William Hicks

EXCLUSIVE FOR LATINO “CITIZENS” IN VENTURA COUNTY. I wonder how it would go over if it were “exclusively” for any other group of citizens in Ventura County. Somehow, I wonder how this got a 501C-3 classification with such racist exclusivity attached to it?
