Our #LatinasRepresent Google Hangout

Out of the more than 12,000 members of congress we’ve had in this country’s history, only 10 have been Latino.

How come there’s been so few?

Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa hosted a Google Hangout with Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA), Dolores Huertas, Melody Gonzalez from Latinas Represent and the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda and Marcela Bailey from the Hispanic Scolarship Fund.

They talked about how Latinas are represented in the media and how they can use their political capital to change the narrative.
