The Canadian Hispanic Bar Association is pleased to announce that one of our members, Alanis Ortiz Espinoza, has been selected to represent her home federal riding, Brampton Center, in the House of Commons for the Daughters of the Vote 2021!
This initiative is ambitious and began in 2017 to commemorate the centenary of some women who gained the right to vote in Canada, and the still incomplete path of full participation by women in politics today. 338 delegates, representing all of Canada's federal drivers, are selected through an open call for applications to participate in a dynamic political leadership summit in Ottawa.
