The HOPE (Hispanas Organized for Political Equality) Public Service Fellowship program is a unique effort to promote the national prominence of Latina leaders and prepare them to lead organizations and public institutions in addressing the country’s most critical issues.
ST. PAUL, MINN. – Senator Melisa Franzen (DFL-Edina) has been accepted into the HOPE National Public Service Fellowship program. This fellowship is an executive leadership program for outstanding Latina professionals who, through increased competence in national and global economic and security issues, can make urgent and long-lasting improvements in the lives of Latinas in the United States and all communities.
