And that voice is named Veronica Arreola. She is a local feminist, blogger, UIC employee, mom, and frequent source for Gapers Block stories. Veronica was the only midwestern latina (the vast majority of those chosen are from New York and Washington DC) chosen for the national feminist media training program. She'll be spending the next few months fine-tuning her writing and speaking skills so she can interact with the media better. So keep your eyes peeled for a sassy latina showing up more often on the local and national news.
