“What we have in common with Mexico, what Mexican Americans can help us understand better and implement is a shared future,” she said following the presentation at USC Saturday, according to the university’s Annenberg TV News service.

“Not just a shared responsibility, but a vision of what is possible for us and our children and our children’s children. I believe that our best allies and partners, for all our sakes, are right here, nearby.”

She also highlighted America’s diversity as one of its key assets.

“We are so lucky as a nation that we have the talents of people from everywhere,” she said, according to CNN. “Our diversity is one of our great strengths.”

The Hermandad Award is presented to leaders who have advanced the foundation’s mission of fostering constructive partnerships between the U.S. and Mexico and enhanced opportunities for the people of Mexico and the health and prosperity of both nations.

A day earlier, Clinton was honored in Beverly Hills for her humanitarian contributions, receiving the Global Champion Award at the International Medical Corps’ 2013 Annual Awards Celebration.
