On my next G+ hangout, I interview NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. Tune in this Thursday, March 26 at 7pm ET to hear Mark-Viverito discuss her political journey, her vision for her district, her city and the nation, and what it’s like to be a Latina #GirlBoss in the wild world of politics. Send in your questions, and don't miss it!
 
All over the country, Latinas are slowly but surely gaining political ground, while infusing public life with their very unique leadership styles, more inclusive perspectives and why not? That chispa that is truly all their own --- even as they defy unbelievable odds on the road to political office.

My next Google hangout guest is a prime example of this: A Latina who has come into national prominence for being a strong defender of her city and district, a fiercely outspoken advocate on social justice issues and, I’d venture say, the harbinger of a new era of Latino leadership in New York City politics. 

As the 1st Latina woman elected to New York City's second-most powerful political post — Speaker of the City Council, Melissa Mark-Viverito is also the first member of the Council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus to hold this position. Her rise to the top of the NYC Council, however, has not necessarily been a breezy one.

Tune in to hear Mark-Viverito discuss her political journey, her vision for her district, her city and the nation, and what it’s like to be a Latina #GirlBoss in the wild world of politics.

And please don't forget to send in your questions for Madame Speaker!

Don't forget to join +Jose Plaza , +SAMHSA gov,  and I at 7pm ET Tonight. Learn all you need to know to #GetCovered  by this Sunday, February 15th. This is your last chance for coverage for the year - Don't miss it!! 
 
Whether you’re single, married, have children or not, one think we can all agree on is how important it is to ensure our family is taken care of, and how scary (not to mention incredibly costly) things can get when you’re not protected. This is especially true when it comes to health. Accidents happen, and no one is invincible. Health insurance can give you the piece of mind you need.

As of Tuesday, there will be only 5 (FIVE!) days left to in health care coverage at healthcare.gov before open enrollment ends on February 15th. Which means: Let the countdown begin! This is your last chance to enroll in 2015 health coverage!

To help you kick-start that process, I have invited a couple of experts who will explain ALL you need to know right now to Get Covered. 

GUESTS:
- Jose Plaza, National Director of Latino Engagement at Enroll America
- Elizabeth Perez, Public Health Advisor, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

Please send them your last-minute questions and tune in on Tuesday at 7 pm ET to get your answers! 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Elianne Ramos AKA ergeekgoddess. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Nothing is more inspiring to me than getting to know individuals who put it all on the line for their ideals. Tonight's guests embody this thought, and I want to thank them immensely for everything they do on behalf of our community. I am proud to know you +Erika Andiola, Cesar Vargas and Juan Escalante. Thanks for hanging out with me tonight!
If you missed the hangout, you missed out on a great conversation with the DREAMers who are taking the immigration narrative into their own hands with their every action. Be inspired.
Watch it all here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzMCn5tLD7g

Join +Erika Andiola, Caesar Vargas, Juan Escalante and me as we discuss the force of nature also known as the DREAMers - Tomorrow at 7pm ET!
 
They’ve been trampled on, disrespected, dehumanized. They’ve been called all kinds of names, arrested, deported. And through it all, their sheer energy and determination has allowed them to rise above and THRIVE. They’re undocumented and unafraid... and they’re a force to be reckoned with. I’m talking, of course, about the DREAMers.

According to the Immigration Policy Center, there are approximately 1.8 million DREAMers in the Unted States, that is, people who were brought  to the United States as children, without documents. Now all grown up, these unbelievably resilient young men and women have become one of the loudest voices in the immigration conversation.

Tomorrow night, I will be interviewing two of the most prominent advocates for the DREAMers: Ceasar Vargas, Co-Director of the DREAM Action Coalition and a graduate from CUNY School of Law and Juan Escalante, a DREAMer and Student at Florida State University, and Erika Andiola, the amazing woman whose name is quickly becoming synonymous with the DREAMer struggle (She's also Co-Director of the DREAM Action Coalition). 

Caesar,  Juan and Erika are fresh off from the Iowa Freedom Summit this past weekend, where Dream Action Coalition just had a demonstration this past weekend. They will share ALL about that experience, what it means to be treated as strangers in their only land they know, and what makes their strategies so effective in the fight for humane immigration legislation.

We're 6 days away from the deadline to get health insurance and to get the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family's health is taken care of. If you haven't registered for coverage under the Affordable Care Act yet, this is your last chance to enroll in 2015 health coverage! 

Join me tomorrow night at 7pm ET as I discuss everything you need to know to enroll with +Jose Plaza from +enroll america and Elizabeth Perez from +SAMHSA. Watch and get ready to #GetCovered!

They encourage us to build on our strengths. They awaken our greatness. They provide support, guidance, common (or un-common) sense advice, regardless of fancy titles or personal wealth.... AND, if they're REALLY, REALLY GREAT, they make us see the possibilities within ourselves.

There's no denying that good role models play a pivotal role in inspiring our youth, reducing incidences of violence and dropouts, and bringing about better, positive outcomes. On my next Google Hangout, I'm talking about ROLE MODELS, you know, the kind of people our Latino kids so desperately need to hear MORE about?

The lineup couldn't be any better: This time I have invited some of my favorite people in the whole world:
- Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation
- Dr. Frances Colón, Acting Science and Technology Adviser to the Secretary of State at the U.S. Department of State
- Recipients of the 2015 Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards, a group of unbelievably talented Latino millennials who are making strides in every field imaginable! (Names to Come)

Please join us and learn how YOU (yes, you!) can become a Latino Role Model Yourself! REALLY!

Date and Time? Tuesday, February 3, 2015 • 7pm ET
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Elianne Ramos AKA ergeekgoddess. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Don't forget to watch tonight as my DREAMer guests Erika Andiola, Cesar Vargas, and Juan Escalante recount their experience at the Iowa Freedom Summit this past weekend and what's next in the immigration fight. It all starts at 7pm ET - Don't miss it!
 
They’ve been trampled on, disrespected, dehumanized. They’ve been called all kinds of names, arrested, deported. And through it all, their sheer energy and determination has allowed them to rise above and THRIVE. They’re undocumented and unafraid... and they’re a force to be reckoned with.
