Sonia Sotomayor First Latina Supreme Court Justice

Congratulations Sonia Sotomayor. She is making history becoming the first Hispanic, first Puerto-Rican, First Latina, and third woman to be confirmed into the U.S. Supreme Court!!!!(Why does this year feel like “THE” year for people of color in politics?”) (Personal Note: As a woman of color, I’ve never felt so liberated and filled with pride. To see someone who had a similar background that I can relate achieve such a milestone is inspirational to me. Just as Barack broke a piece of the color barrier, Sonia has broken race and gender, and have made it a little easier for me, and other women of color to achieve our dreams.)
