Voto Latino, the non-profit organization founded by actress Rosario Dawson to promote American Latino youth civic participation, celebrated its five-year anniversary last month by kicking off its ON Series here in Washington, DC. Dawson and Voto Latino Executive Director Maria Teresa Kumar were joined by the President’s Domestic Policy adviser Melody Barnes and Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis for “ON: Greening the Next Generation Workforce” to discuss the role of Latino’s in the emerging green economy.
Sitting at one of Fox News’ nine tables at Friday’s RTCA and bringing a bit of non-D.C. buzz to the event will be Carrie Prejean, the Miss USA runner-up who was stripped of her title as Miss California after pageant officials accused her of violating her contract.
Prejean, who has been exchanging snipes with pageant officials about just what happened-she denies doing anything wrong and accuses pageant officials of behaving badly — was a brief part of the Fox News family recently, when she guest-hosted the 6-7 a.m. hour of “Fox & Friends.”
Among the other Fox News guests is Melody Barnes, the White House Domestic Policy Adviser.
A partial list of the Fox News talent who will be in attendance (joining a number of Fox News execs) includes Carl Cameron, Major Garrett, Martha MacCallum, Mike Emanuel, Shannon Bream, Jennifer Griffin, Peter Barnes, Kelly Wright, Juan Williams and Catherine Herridge.
