According to statistics from the HNBA, Hispanics – who are 18% of the population – comprise about 4% of U.S. lawyers. For Latinas, these numbers are even smaller as they account for less than 2% of American lawyers.
The impact of representation, or lack thereof, starts young and can affect us for the rest of our lives. Seeing and identifying with a particular character or person, whether onscreen, in a book, or in the leaders and role models we see around us, shows us the possibilities of what we can be. It helps shape our personal beliefs and goals. When a child sees someone who looks like them succeeding, it inspires the belief in them that they too can succeed.
Me and the powerful women beside me are working our way towards changing those statistics in the near future. Just imagining a future with three Latina Justices on the bench makes me feel so excited and hopeful.
If she can see it, she can be it.
Tonight was the SPECTACULAR AND SOLD OUT opening of the SF Jewish Film Festival—all thanks to such a wonderful and truly heartfelt documentary, LOVE, GILDA. Everyone who is a fan of Gilda’s and #comedy will fall in love with this film. So honored to be a board member of the Jewish Film Institute who works so hard to bring these wonderful films to our community. And thank you to the incredibly talented and legendary Laraine Newman for the Q&A, and to my dear friends at Magnolia Pictures for acquiring another winning Doc.
This is really turning out to be a year of firsts for women in politics. We can only hope the wave hits Nigeria.
Regrann from @glblctzn - The outcome of San Francisco’s mayoral special election was more than special — it was historic. London Breed won a tight race in June to become the city’s first black female mayor, and its second female mayor ever. Of the 15 largest cities in the US, San Francisco is now the only one led by a woman. The 43-year-old is a San Francisco native who grew up in the city’s public housing, where the majority of black San Franciscans still live, and she is a long-time community activist. Go to the link in bio to read more about Breed and her inspiring win.

“Now that I put the crown of kingdom of Iran, Babylon, and the nations of the four directions on the head with the help of Ahura Mazda(God), I announce that I will respect the traditions, customs and religions of the nations of my empire and never let any of my governors and subordinates look down on or insult them until I am alive. From now on, till (Ahura) Mazda grants me the kingdom favor, I will impose my monarchy on no nation. Each is free to accept it , and if any one of them rejects it , I never resolve on war to reign. Until I am the king of Iran, Babylon, and the nations of the four directions, I never let anyone oppress any others, and if it occurs , I will take his or her right back and penalize the oppressor… To day, I announce that everyone is free to choose a religion. People are free to live in all regions and take up a job provided that they never violate other's rights. No one could be penalized for his or her relatives' faults. I prevent slavery and my governors and subordinates are obliged to prohibit exchanging men and women as slaves within their own ruling domains. Such a traditions should be exterminated the world over.
I implore to (Ahura) Mazda to make me succeed in fulfilling my obligations to the nations of Iran (Persia), Babylon, and the ones of the four directions.”

When it comes to relationships, it's very important that we learn love languages. For ourselves and for other people
When you know your own love language, you're better equipped to understand exactly what it is that you expect out of a relationship.
This also helps you to better understand the people in your life, and helps to give great insight for times where miscommunication can run rampant. .
So take the time to learn your #LoveLanguage and ask your lover, kiddo, mother how they like to be loved. You may be surprised with what you hear. 👑💖🙏🏽
On a side note, this topic is SO GOOD it's definitely gonna be a YouTube video in the making.
