About Us

275Alex Speaks is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to helping San Francisco Bay Area schools that are serving autistic children every day while raising awareness to the causes and treatments for this silent disease.

Founded by Dr. Bernardo Gonzalez III in 2004, shortly after his son was diagnosed with autism, Alex Speaks hosts an annual fundraiser that features some of the most legendary voices of Latin Rock, including Carlos Santana, Malo, and Shelia E.

The Alex Speaks Foundation’s goal is to help support children struggling with an autism disorder by contributing to autistic programs at local schools. The Alex Speaks Foundation was formed to partner with the Voices of Latin Rock event to raise funds for those programs. This show benefits schools in California dealing with Autism on a daily basis. This disorder has increased recently to 1 in 88 births, up from 1 in 166 just a few years ago. With the Bay Area’s support of this event, we can continue our support of both schools and research for Autism.
