LatinasRepresent New York City Empowerment Luncheon PDF Print E-mail

Latinas are one of the fastest-growing populations in the United States, totaling more than 25 million strong. Yet, out of the more than 8,000 seats in state and national political office, only a little more than 100 Latinas serve in elected office – representing about 1% of political leaders nationwide. That’s unacceptable and clearly needs to change.

LatinasRepresent, a joint initiative of Political Parity and the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, is an agent for change that the Federation fully embraces and supports.

On Wednesday, October 15, 2014, please join Hispanic Federation, National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA) and Political Parity for the LatinasRepresent New York City Empowerment Luncheon, where participants will hear from inspiring Latina elected officials and a panel of women professionals on how we can change the political landscape and elect many more Latina leaders.
