Voto Latino Congratulates Representative Nanette Barragán on her Election as Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair
Voto Latino today congratulated Representative Nanette D. Barragán on being elected as the Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC).
“Congresswoman Barragán’s election is a smart move for the CHC and a big win for Latina representation in Congress. Representative Barragán has made clear that she’s deeply committed to making real change for our community–and that she’s a talented political strategist, too. She’s been a champion for environmental protection, affordable healthcare, and for policies that help Latinos thrive in our increasingly diverse nation. She’s shown that she understands the profound importance of reforming our broken immigration system. Her election is good news for everyone who cares about empowering our community.
“It’s been a pleasure working with the outgoing caucus chair, Congressman Raul Ruiz. As he steps down and Congresswoman Barragán takes the gavel, we look forward to furthering the interests of the Latino community in the 118th Congress.”
