It’s not a surprise that among the largest minority group Latinas are gaining power politically and economically. Throughout the nation we are seeing Latinas in elected office that are shaping politics and working to improve the cities they represent that includes our Latino communities.
Latinas in office are on the rise. The state of Nevada has Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, New York has NYC Councilwoman Melissa Mark Viverito and NH Representative Marilinda Garcia. Detroit City Councilwoman Raquel Castañeda-Lopez shares with her journey to get on the ballot and her work after being elected. If your passionate about making changes in your community, then you should consider running for office to make change. There are great resources like Emily's List.
