DALLAS, Texas – The Dallas Hispanic Bar Association, DHBA, recently announced the appointment of Fabiola Segovia, an attorney at Hamilton Wingo, LLP, to its Board of Directors.
Segovia will serve as the Director furthering DHBA’s efforts with voting rights and civic engagement. A partnership between the DHBA and Hispanic National Bar Association was created and led by Segovia, where the groups strive to create a program in that Hispanic Bar associations across the United States can model.
“I’m honored to serve in this role and to continue to work with such a dedicated and accomplished group of leaders,” Segovia said. “The experiences and perspectives of our new Board members will help us identify and expand opportunities to teach about voting rights in the underserved Hispanic communities.”
Segovia brings years of experience with voting rights and civic engagement. Most notably is her recent work with the non-profit, March to the Polls. Segovia volunteers as a guest speaker, where she encourages high school seniors to register to vote and become engaged in their community. In two years, this organization has registered more than 4,000 high school seniors to vote.
