Voto Latino announces celebrity guest for Sigma Lambda Gamma retreat
WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 25, 2015 – Before the 2014 midterm elections, Voto Latino partnered with 16 national Latino and Multicultural Greek-lettered organizations for the Rep Ur Letters Challenge, a competition for Greeks to register voters on their campus and within their communities. In November, Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. was named the winner after registering the most voters through the Rep Ur Letters Challenge.
Voto Latino began the Rep Ur Letters Challenge in 2012 in order to promote voter registration and voting rights among young Latinos, and is excited to provide the women of Sigma Lambda Gamma with an opportunity to hear from an empowering Latina.
Today, Voto Latino has released that Latina supermodel Jaslene Gonzalez will be attending Sigma Lambda Gamma’s 25th Anniversary Sisterhood Retreat July 10-12 in Schaumburg, Illinois, where she will be speaking during their sisterhood banquet. Jaslene rose to fame after being crowned the winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 8. Since then, she has been featured in ad campaigns for CoverGirl and Garnier cosmetics, appeared on the covers of Seventeen and Latina magazines, and has gone on international fashion tours in Malaysia, Thailand, Honduras, and India.
“Congratulations to the sisters of Sigma Lambda Gamma on winning the 2014 Rep Ur Letters Challenge,” said Voto Latino President and CEO, María Teresa Kumar. “We are excited for one empowering young Latina to connect with hundreds more.”
