Coming Up Next! Interview with Sylvia Puente Executive Director of Latino Policy Forum: 100 Most Influential Hispanics in the U.S.




"In Honor of Hispanic Heritage Month,  and our friends at the Latino Policy Forum, Women For Action interviews Sylvia Puente, Executive Director of The Latino Policy Forum, who has also been appointed by Illinois Governor Pat Quinn to serve as chair of the Education Funding Advisory Board. Sylvia was introduced to activism in her childhood and joined her mother on picket lines in support of the United Farm Workers.  Though she has been listed as  one of the “100 Most Influential Hispanics in the U.S.” she feels that her work can only be attributed to the support garnered by others! Learn more from Sylvia about efforts to register 5,000 new voters through the Voto x Voto campaign.  Our interview will follow!
