Stepping up to Hispanic Leadership

6 10 2009

Stepping up to lead is not an easy task. It takes courage, commitment and ganas, especially in this town. Yes, it’s hard to step up when there aren’t a lot of us in leadership roles in this community. Just look at the make-up of our City Council (1 Hispanic) and the make-up of our boards in the nonprofit sector. But we must step up if we want to change our representation and tackle the issues facing our community.  That’s exactly what my friend and Futuro Fund co-hort, Raul Alvarez is doing.  Raul knows that we all have a role to play and he’s doing his part for Austin; from community organizer to Austin City Council member and now to Travis County Commissioner.  Raul is running for Travis County Commissioner Precinct 4 and he needs our support!  Let’s show Austin that Latinos are civicly involved and we have the people power and the ganas to lead this community!Raul's Photo
