Latinas Lead California is proud to announce our new name and new initiatives. Why Latinas Lead? The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics recent study entitled, "Fulfilling America's Future: Latinas in the U.S., 2015" stated the following on Latina's political participation:
"Greater representation by Latinas in voting and in elected office could help support policies that would narrow the gaps between Latinas and others. Efforts to increase political representation of Latinas could be enhanced considerably by providing them with more information about the benefits of citizenship. Many more Latina voters could be brought to the polls if their rate of naturalization was increased."
Our mission is clear. We're ready for 2016. Let's get started.
