On October 1, CHCI brought together the Freshman class of Latino representatives to share their powerful stories—their journeys, their challenges, their goals, and their experience so far in their new roles.

This inspiring discussion was led by CNN anchor Zoraida Sambolin and featured opening remarks by special guests Rep. Steny Hoyer, House Democratic Whip; Alex Padilla, California State Senator and President of NALEO; and Hon. Jessie Ulibarri, Colorado State Senator.

Panelists included the newest Hispanic Members of Congress:

Tony Cárdenas Joaquin Castro Pete Gallego Joe Garcia
Michelle Lujan Grisham Gloria Negrete McLeod Raul Ruiz, M.D. Juan Vargas

The Freshman Congressional Class Luncheon was made possible by the generous support of NielsenEntravision Communications, and JPMorgan Chase.
