What an inspiring first day at the IALAS State Affiliates Conference. The words from Nancy Lewin, Executive Director, “you have to rise up, you have to pick others up, you have to lend a helping hand” were powerful and hit home. As Latinx leaders, it’s up to us to search for and develop the next generation of Latinx leaders. I’m grateful for IALAS and the work that the founding board did to create such an important organization. We have a lot to do, but the good thing is that ¡sí se puede!
