In a few hours I will be joining a cohort of my hermanas, Latina bloggers at a meeting at the White House.  Some of these women I have had the honor and priviledge to know and work with for years.  A few I am even working with at present on the deployment of the Latino Voice survey to make sure the Latino voice is heard and counted, especially during this very important election year.  And yet others I look forward to meeting for the first time in person tomorrow.

As I mentioned in the Game Changers interview last week, there are several issues of import to the Latino community that are top of mind in the blogosphere and social media including topics like the economy, health care, education and immigration.  I am hopeful for a robust discussion on Monday that will touch on these topics and more.  This event has been organized in partnership with LATISM, the national Latino organization that I helped to form in 2009- 2010.   As a founding board member of LATISM, I must say that it is exciting to see it continue to grow and work to make a difference on behalf of the Latino community.  The only thing that I can think of being more exciting is seeing one of these Latinas in the White House or in another type of elected office in the years to come.  I look forward to sharing further news after Monday's meeting.

The other ladies that have been invited to participate in the briefing include:
