Washington, D.C. – This month Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) met with community faith leaders from the group Esperanza to discuss the importance of religious freedom, educational opportunities, and the future of immigration reform. Esperanza, a nationwide faith-based community group, focuses on empowering Hispanic communities through education, economic development and advocacy.
“I am proud to join Esperanza in our shared commitment to empower the American people,” said McMorris Rodgers. “That’s what Esperanza does for members of America’s vibrant Hispanic community. Through their advocacy, they empower Hispanic-Americans to embrace opportunities and offer hope for a better life. Esperanza understands that economic opportunities begin in the classroom, and I am so thankful for all the work they have done to advocate for charter schools.”
Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers also spoke at Esperanza’s annual conference in Washington, D.C.
