Dear Friend,

Across the country, there have been recent opportunities to celebrate advocates and public servants leading in a variety of areas. As such, LatinasRepresent has been lifting up Latinas in environmental advocacy, law and public office. We are incredibly thankful for their work and want to ensure that you can hear their stories as a source of knowledge and inspiration.

Please find below some of the highlights from LatinasRepresent celebrating Earth Day and Law Day. You will also find “Latinas in the Spotlight” featuring recent stories of Latina leaders. Want to 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,
