In brief: Cristina Tzintzún is a force of nature. I was lucky enough to catch up with her during her busy Jolt Texas travel schedule. She’s making a huge push to empower as many in the Latinx community — particularly the youth — not just to show up on election day, but to learn to wield all the power they have. Tzintzún has racked up legislative wins protecting the rights of hundreds of thousands of workers as the founder of the Workers Defense Project. You can’t listen to her without feeling empowered yourself, whether or not you are a Latinx youth; she’ll give you plenty of ways to get involved!
