The incoming 115th Congress will feature 34 Hispanic members serving in the House and 4 in the Senate, including Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, who will become the first Latina to serve in the United States Senate.
The biannual swearing-in ceremony and reception brings together more than 300 supporters and guests in celebration and recognition of Latino leadership in Congress. The reception also serves as a networking and fundraising event, bringing together the Board and Advisory Council, partners, supporters, program participants and alumni.
The ceremony is scheduled for January 10, 2017 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in the Congressional Auditorium.
