We also want to keep increasing Latino representation in the U.S. House of Representatives by supporting candidates who champion progressive issues that help the Latino community thrive. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that we help elect more Latinos and Latinas who support values that matter to our community to these critical government positions.”
