For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms. 

The Beat DC blows through that trope. 

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Latino Victory Fund Endorses Five Latina Congressional Candidates

Latino Victory Fund Endorses Five Latina Congressional Candidates

Latino Victory Fund (LVF) has launched “Year of the Latina” to foster excitement among Latina voters and elect a record number of progressive Latinas this November. As part of this effort, LVF has endorsed congressional candidates Debbie Mucarsel-Powell who is running for Florida’s 26th Congressional District, Virginia Madueño for California’s 10th Congressional District, Antoinette Sedillo López for New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District, Xochitl Torres Small for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District and Arizona AG candidate January Contreras. To empower Latinas running for office, LVF will increase the number female candidates it supports and make endorsements in competitive races with viable Latina candidates. “Faced with an anti-woman, anti-Latino Trump Administration, Latinas are answering this generation’s call for courageous leadership,” said Mayra Macías, Political Director for Latino Victory Fund. “These five candidates embody Latina values; they are strong, hard-working, and deeply dedicated to their communities. Together, we’ll work to ensure that Latinas have a seat at the table at every level of government.” More here.
