In honor of Women’s History Month, the New American Leaders Project celebrates the contributions of immigrant women in elected office, including these three barrier-breaking female leaders and NALP honorees: Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez (the first gay Latina Sheriff in the United States) Michigan State Senator Rashida Tlaib (the first Muslim female elected to Michigan’s State House) and U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (the first Asian woman elected to the U.S. Senate)
