CAWP Co-Hosts Latinas Lead Program
CAWP director Debbie Walsh delivers opening remarks.
This week, the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) and the Center for American Women and Politics co-hosted the Latinas Lead Initiative, which is a program that aims to boost the numbers of Latina state legislators nationwide. 

The initiative brought together two dozen Latina state legislators from around the country, along with members of the NHSCL board, to have conversations and training about advancing important policy issues, increasing the representation of Latina elected officials, and building a Latina power base in the political community and within legislative bodies.

"Latinas make up just 2% of state legislative and Congressional seats nationwide. CAWP is glad to partner with NHCSL in their important work to address this under-representation by helping more Latina state legislators attain leadership roles in their caucuses and by empowering the next generation of Latina elected leaders," said CAWP associate director Jean Sinzdak.

The latest edition of  Rutgers Magazine featured a Q&A with alumni Ava Majlesi and Elie Honig about the work of the Rutgers Institute for Secure Communities (RISC) and the Miller Center for Community Protection and Resilience (CPR), which is affiliated with the Eagleton Institute of Politics and Rutgers Law School.

The piece highlighted the domestic and international work of RISC and CPR, which help Rutgers stay at the forefront of national security issues. Honig and Majlesi spoke about CPR's work in Whitefish, Montana to help local community leaders and law enforcement officials respond to anti-Semitic threats. They also discussed CPR's program in partnership with the International March of the Living, which educated deans from colleges around the country about the Holocaust.

Honig, an alumn of the Eagleton Undergraduate Associates Program, is the executive director of RISC. Majlesi is the associate director of both RISC and CPR.
