Eva Longoria has always been an outspoken and proud Latina. She even went back to school a few years ago to get her MA in Chicano Studies and to brush up on her Spanish. We love that she is always so involved in political issues surrounding our community and that she is an outspoken advocate for countless organizations from MALDEF to the NCLR and the campaign to create a National Museum of the American Latino. Here's what she had to say about growing up Latina in Texas.

Eva Longoria is extremely giddy about the 2011 National Council of La Raza (NCLR) ALMA Awards. And why wouldn’t she be? The Mexican American star of Desperate Housewives is not only co-hosting the awards ceremony this year, but she’s also a longtime executive producer for the show.
