The Curacao Foundation presented Latinos United Concert at the Los Angeles Coliseum located at 3911 S. Figueroa Street in the City of Los Angeles, California on October 20, 2018.
The concert was given to support immigrant children that have been separated from their families due to deportation of parents and children left behind. A subject that no one wants to hear, but it is reality. These children are need of help. By raising money, the Curacao Foundation hopes to provide advocacy organizations that help immigrant children some relief by providing funds to support their cause.

They help assist Latinos to improve their political and economic well-being. Casa Libre is a license emergency and long-term shelter for minors under the age of 18 without homes.
