Female politicians of color discuss setbacks and successes

The Asian Pacific Islander Caucus hosted Assemblymember Cristina Garcia, State Senator Holly Mitchell and Mayor Pro Tempore of Sierra Madre Rachelle Arizmendi, who discussed their experiences as women in politics Friday at Ronald Tutor Campus Center.

As women of color, each of the panelists had to overcome the perceptions of their peers to not only get elected, but also to make a difference.
