One reason why there are not enough women running for public office is because women are not encouraged to run by family members, friends, and colleagues. The number of women in government is already low, but the number of Latinas in government is even lower. Take action and nominate a Latina you know to run for office! Tell her why you think she’s a great fit and we will send her your message as well as resources to VoteRunLead and LatinasRepresent to help get her started in her journey to elected office!
**The #INominate #YoNomino project is aimed at encouraging more Latinas to seek public leadership positions. It is not intended to be and should not be construed as an “endorsement” by Barnard College, The Athena Leadership Program, VoteRunLead, LatinasRepresent or any of our allies. Barnard College, VoteRunLead and LatinasRepresent are all non-partisan 501(c)(3) entities.
