“I think it is important for R2L to exist because young Latino leaders need this type of empowerment. Many of us come from communities where we don’t see Latinos in positions of influence. This program teaches us that we can take on those positions and initiate change in our community. Visiting D.C. and meeting influential Latino leaders makes me feel like I can be heard and that I can one day be in those influential positions as well.”
