Sotomayor's Confirmation Fiesta!

Today is the big day! The U.S. Senate is projected to take up the full vote on Sotomayor's Nomination around 3 p.m. There are plenty of Latino and non-Latinos gatherings throughout the country celebrating this historical event; in Chicago, NYC, LA, San Francisco, Houston, Miami, Washington, DC., and more. It’s time to CELEBRATE the Bronx, our community, and America!
