Eva Longoria

Longoria served as a co-chair of President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and has become a passionate advocate for Latino causes through her eponymous charitable foundation. Longoria says, “I do all of my civic work because I was raised in these communities and they gave a lot to me. I started giving back to the special-needs community because my sister benefited from so many programs that were in our community. I grew up with the Boys & Girls Club and LULAC and National Council of La Raza and applied for scholarships. So these are the organizations and communities that helped me evolve and grow as a person.”
