Justice Sotomayor is the first Latino and third woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court. During the interview, she spoke of her humble beginnings in the Bronx housing projects, her struggles to learn English and to overcome financial hardships, as well as her courageous choices and inspiring successes.

Eva Longoria, a well-known television and movie actress and MALDEF board member, was the perfect choice to moderate. Her tireless advocacy efforts have helped Latinas build better futures for themselves. She has established her own foundations and works with leading minority rights organizations, such as MALDEF, to make a difference in the Latino community. The event was recorded at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California.
