César Chávez & International Women's Month!!!
THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF WOMEN DURING THE MONTH OF MARCH
As such, it is only fitting that our cover feature a Latina leader from East Los Angeles who was inspired to pursue public service by the United Farm Worker struggle and the Chicana/o Civil Rights Movement. The newly elected Los Angeles County Supervisor for District 1, Hilda L. Solis has returned to represent the Greater East Side after her sojourn to Washington D.C., where she held a preeminent post as Secretary of Labor under Barack Obama. Brooklyn & Boyle's own Abel Salas speaks to the Supervisor as she moves into her new role as a tireless advocate for education, health, improved quality of life, and economic prosperity for all District 1 residents.
