In this podcast, as part of our series celebrating our new name, “Esperanza United”, we partner with LatinasRepresent to interview Dr. Lisa Magaña on her most recent book, co-authored with César Silva, ¡Empoderados!/Empowered! How Latinos Transformed Politics in Arizona.
As a Professor in the School of Transborder Studies at Arizona State University, Dr. Lisa Magaña has authored multiple books including Straddling the Border and The Politics of Diversity and Arizona, Immigration and Latinos & Politics.
LatinasRepresent is an initiative led by National Hispanic Leadership Agenda. Their mission is to increase Latina participation throughout the civic engagement continuum, inspire more Latinas to seek public service opportunities, and create a more reflective democracy. Their Program Manager Stephanie Lopez joins us in this episode, along with our Director of Communications and Marketing Cristina Escobar.
