Ms. Vargas, who is from El Salvador, and her Latina union colleagues are a growing force in the politics and culture of Nevada, vocal in their beliefs and expectations. Their 57,000-member Culinary Union, a powerful supporter of Nevada Democrats, is now 56 percent Latino — a jump from 35 percent just 20 years ago.

In an election cycle as long and strange as 2016’s, there is plenty of room for counterintuitive journalistic takes. But in a long piece arguing that Hillary Clinton does not represent progressive or non-white women, who thus will not really share in her triumph if she wins, The Atlantic’s Emma Green has taken some extreme liberties with the available evidence. One can, of course, as Green has done, track down and interview enough anti-Clinton or lukewarm-pro-Clinton women to give the impression they — not the vast numbers of their peers who sure seem excited about a Clinton presidency —are representative. You can conduct the same exercise in exploring the views of anti-Trump conservative white evangelicals. But assertions backed by anecdotes do not make for a persuasive case.

Women of color should be just as tough on Democrat Hillary Clinton as they are on Republican Donald Trump in demanding that the candidates address issues important to them, their families and their communities.

A coalition of groups focused on issues affecting women of color and poor women has launched a campaign to ensure that its concerns are not overlooked by candidates on the ballot this fall. We Won’t Wait 2016 plans to hold 500,000 “kitchen table conversations” to encourage women of color to be vocal about issues important to them, including economic security, social justice and family care, and to show up at the polls to elect candidates who best represent those interests.

Miriam Cepeda is probably one of few — a 24-year-old Latina and a self-proclaimed “Trump girl” on the South Texas border — and she wants you to know it. She volunteers for Donald Trump’s campaign in an area where 90% of its population identifies as Hispanic or Latino, and she lives in Texas’ Hidalgo County. Proof that not all of Texas votes Republican, President Barack Obama won 70% of the vote there in 2012. This is also not far from where Trump wants to build his wall with Mexico.

A new poll has found that an overwhelming majority of Latina voters under the age of 40 in the U.S. view the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump negatively. The poll, released Monday by American Women, Voto Latino Action Network, and iAmerica Action, found 84 percent of Latinas have an unfavorable view of the billionaire businessman. In contrast, 55 percent find his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to be a favorable candidate.

Hillary Clinton wants young Latinas to vote in 2016, so this week, she’s launching a new initiative called “Mujeres in Politics” to encourage young Latinas to register to vote. According to NBC News, the initiative will start with a group of Latina Clinton campaign members and volunteers in New York, including NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, calling Latinas in Colorado to talk to them about the importance of voting. The program was created by two Clinton campaign field organizers and will focus on states where the Latina population is going to be a key voter segment in the election, such as Nevada and Colorado.
