Local Latina Leaders: Empowering and Representing Latinx in State and Local Government

Local Latina Leaders

In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, join us for a special virtual event to hear from three local Latina leaders in Massachusetts state and city government:

  • Rosalin Acosta – MA Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development
  • Judith Garcia – Chelsea City Councilor and Vice President
  • Tania del Rio – Executive Director, City of Boston’s Office of Women’s Advancement (and HKS alumna)

Our esteemed panelistas will share their stories about their own paths to and within state & city government, their insights on the importance of Latinx leadership during the Coronavirus pandemic, and their ideas on how to inspire and involve more Latinas to serve in a variety of roles in state & city government. HKS Latinx Caucus co-chair Cassandra Duchan Saucedo will moderate, and there will also be audience Q&A.

This virtual event will be on Wed, October 14th from 4-5pm ET (pre-registration is required here), and is being proudly co-hosted by the HKS Latinx Caucus, the Taubman Center for State & Local Government, the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, the HKS Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, and the Institute of Politics. ¡Nos vemos ahí!
