Lina Hidalgo 28yrs old – Houston, TX | Harris County Judge. Attorney Lina Hidalgo, made made big news during the 2018 Texas midterms, when she – at 27 years old – flipped the seat for Harris County Judge, from red to blue! Harris County, the largest county in Texas and third largest in the nation, was a seat that had been held for over 10 years by a Republican, white, male, and is now under the leadership of a Democratic, young, immigrant, Latina. Lina makes history as the first female, and the youngest, to be elected Harris County Judge!

Jessica Cisneros 26 yrs old – Laredo, TX | Candidate U.S. Congress Texas 28th District. Attorney Jessica Cisneros also made the list. We have been huge fans of Tejana, Jessica Cisneros, ever since she hit the scene earlier this year. Attorney, Texas native, fuerza Latina, representing the frontera, and a current Democratic Congressional candidate, Cisneros is most definitely one to watch. She is blazing trails in South Texas and we KNOW she is about to make history in 2020!

As a daughter of farmworkers I stand on the shoulders of giants. Their sacrifice opened the door for me and my sister to reach the success that we dreamed of. On this labor day weekend I honor my parents, and I also honor the farmworker movement that fights for the dignity of all workers.
