"The Power of Young Voters to Transform Texas"
We are proud to announce Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez as DWCC's guest speaker for September. She is a leading civil rights activist and former 2020 U.S. Senate candidate.
Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez is the current president of NextGen America, a progressive organization that seeks to mobilize voters 35 and younger. Prior to NextGen, Cristina founded and led Jolt, a Texas-wide organization focused on building the political power and influence of the young Latinx community.
Cristina began her career fighting for better work conditions for immigrant workers by co-founding the Workers Defense Project. In her decade of work there, she won the passage of half a dozen local and state laws protecting the rights of workers. Her work also led to federal safety investigations and national initiatives to protect vulnerable workers.
Cristina's work has been featured on NPR, Vogue, The New York Times, MTV, USA Today, Univision, and several MSNBC shows, among others. Want to see more about the organizations on which Cristina has had an indelible impact? Here are their websites.
