Dear friend,

Throughout the past month, LatinasRepresent has been actively involved in lifting up and engaging Latina leaders across the nation. During Women’s History Month, LatinasRepresent co-hosted an event with EMILY’s List, joined an inspiring panel on Latinas in Public Service at the LULAC National Women’s Conference and highlighted various Latina leaders on both social media and the digital action center. LatinasRepresent also recently led a training for the women of the Leadership Institute for Political and Public Impact (LIPPI) in Massachusetts.

In this newsletter, you will find highlights from the past month, as well as upcoming events in which LatinasRepresent is participating or leading. LatinasRepresent is looking forward to meeting with and hearing from more Latina leaders in public service at all levels throughout the nation. Whether it is volunteerism or holding a position in public office, your leadership is valued and necessary!

Want to you share your story with us? Record your own video to tell us how you are leading and use #LatinasRepresent when you share it! Thank you for your support and we look forward to your continued engagement.

Sincerely,
Mónica Ramírez
Director of Gender Equity and Advocacy, National Hispanic Leadership Agenda
