Hispanic Heritage Month Influential Person #3: Sophie Cruz. 🇲🇽 Sophie may only be 8 years old, but she is a brave and vocal activist! Sophie was born in the United States, but her parents are undocumented and could face deportation. When Pope Francis visited Washington, D.C., in 2015, when she was just 5 years old, she hoped to meet him to deliver a note asking him to speak out for undocumented immigrants. When the Pope's car passed by, Sophie ran out into the street to see him but was turned away by security. However, the Pope had seen her run out from the crowd and requested to meet her. He hugged her, and she left her note with his attendants. Pope Francis addressed the issue at a joint meeting of the United States Congress the next day, encouraging greater openness for immigrants and refugees. Cruz's trip to see the Pope was sponsored by La Hermandad Mexicana Transnacional, a Los Angeles-based immigration advocacy organization. In an interview, Cruz said: "I believe I have the right to live with my parents. I have the right to be happy. My dad works very hard in a factory galvanizing pieces of metal. All immigrants just like my dad feed this country. They deserve to live with dignity. They deserve to live with respect." In May 2016, Cruz was invited to visit President Barack Obama at the White House for a Cinco de Mayo celebration. Because her parents were undocumented, they were not able to enter the White House, and instead, Sophie was accompanied by Alida Garcia from FWD.us and filmmaker Paola Mendoza. Mendoza had previously directed a short video, "Free Like the Birds," starring Sophie and her family that debuted in the Tribeca Film Festival. She appeared in the video "11 Million Stories" in partnership with FWD.us, which discussed the potential implications of national mass-deportation and how children like her, with undocumented parents, faced certain obstacles. On January 21, 2017, Cruz was a featured speaker at the Women's March in Washington, D.C., in protest against the inauguration of Donald Trump. She said in her memorized speech, given in both English and Spanish, "We are here together making a chain of love to protect our families. Let us fight with love, faith, and courage so that our families will not be destroyed." Cruz's widely seen speech was called "powerful" and "inspiring," with one commentator saying that she had "captured hearts" with her performance. #LALSAHispanicHeritageMonth #graciasportucontribución #lalsa #tourolawlalsa #tourolalsa #tourolawcenter #tourolaw #touro

Hispanic Heritage Month Influential Person #2: Gina Rodriguez. 🇵🇷 She is an American actress, rapper, model, writer, producer, and director. She is the daughter of Puerto Rican parents. She is best known for her starring role as Jane Villanueva in Jane the Virgin. In 2015, she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy. She is the SECOND LATINA to ever win this award. However, it is not just her acting that should be paid close attention, but her voice as well. She is an active supporter of the Hispanic/Latino community as a member of the board of directors for the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (whose mission is to support Latino families with the knowledge and resources to successfully complete a higher education, while providing scholarships and support services to as many Hispanic American students as possible), and supporter of the Adelante Movement (a nonprofit that aims to train and empower Latinas to become entrepreneurs), the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP’s mission is to “discover, promote and inspire Latinx content creators and diverse voices across all media platforms”), the National Council of La Raza (NCLR is a Latino nonprofit advocacy organization that advocates in favor of progressive public policy changes including immigration reform, a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, and reduced deportations), and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI is a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization, providing leadership development programs and educational services to students and young emerging Latino leaders). Rodriguez also launched the We Will Foundation, which aims to empower young women from low-income backgrounds and help them find their path in the performing arts. On her Instagram, she started #MovementMondays where she showcases the achievements of a different Latinx activist, actor, singer, etc. every week. #LALSAHispanicHeritageMonth #graciasportucontribución #lalsa #tourolawlalsa #tourolalsa #tourolawcenter #tourolaw #touro
Hispanic Heritage Month Influential Person #1: Hon. Miriam Naveira de Merly. 🇵🇷 Research study was done on the Latinas who argued before the nation’s high court, from 1950 to 2009, and it revealed only THIRTEEN known Latinas have argued before the Supreme Court of the United States. The first known Latina to argue before the United States Supreme Court was Hon. Miriam Naveira de Merly who argued Examining Board v. Flores de Otero, 426 U.S. 572 (1976), in 1975. Naveira was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, in 1934. She obtained her Bachelor's Degree in chemistry from the College of Mount Saint Vincent and her law degree from the University of Puerto Rico. In 1975, she was the Solicitor General of Puerto Rico. She went on to eventually serve on the Puerto Rico Supreme Court beginning in 1985, and as Chief Justice of Puerto Rico from 2003-2004. #LALSAHispanicHeritageMonth #graciasportucontribución #lalsa #tourolawlalsa #tourolalsa #tourolawcenter #tourolaw #touro
