Latinas Rising believes that many Latinas and Latinx are leading the fight for social justice through their chosen professions and academic work. Our presence in the fields of law, education, and advocacy is making a difference in changing the social political landscape for our communities. Simply being present in these spaces, traditionally not occupied by us, is changing our landscape for future generations.

We are ecstatic to present our featured "Latinas in Law, Advocacy, and Education Panel" for the inaugural LatinaCon 2019.

Presenting Dr. Yolanda Rios,

Dr. Yolanda Rios was born and raised in Houston, TX. She is a proud UHD Alumni and the first in her family to graduate from college. Over the years she has spent countless hours serving organizations that contribute to success in the areas of Hispanic Leadership and Bilingual Education.

Dr. Rios currently serves the New Caney ISD community as the Director of Multilingual by providing services for students and families of English Learners and Immigrants/Migrant students. This role has allowed her to provide educational access to students who are learning English by providing resources and training teachers on strategies to help their students succeed.

Her recent research contributions are in the areas of Hispanic dropouts, school attendance, and graduation rates. At the young age of 27, she completed her doctorate at Sam Houston State University and has continued to have an interest in how school climate affects Hispanic student achievement.

Dr. Rios’ continued passion comes from the idea that the world can be a better place if we first believe in our future, and our students.
