Eva Longoria’s success as an actress is helping her become involved in politics. She helped host “Latino
Inaugural 2013: In Performance at the Kennedy Center,” a concert celebrating Latino culture at
President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony. The Latino community accounted for a substantial amount of
Obama’s votes. Longoria said that she hopes to help influence policies, including immigration reform.
She called the Latino fundraising effort for the president a historic turning point. “I think we have a
permanent seat at the table, and now we’re going to be able to have influence on what affects our
communities,” Longoria told the Associated Press. “I take civic responsibility very seriously, and I want to
do what I can to help my country.” JAMMIN’ one oh one five recognizes Eva Longoria
