But though she uses [...]

T-shirts feature Latina flairavatar

with one comment

I’m totally loving KC Los Angeles’ T-shirts “with a Latina flair.” I first checked out the company’s Website (KCTees.com) after Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed as the first Latino justice, and just the third female justice, to sit on the Supreme Court.

VIDEO: Citizenship, with a viewavatar

Last week, my co-worker and I spent the morning covering a naturalization ceremony at Yosemite National Park. (The story is in this week’s edition of Vida en el Valle.)
