BIO

Ruth Guerra is a bilingual spokeswoman and Director of Hispanic Media for the Republican National Committee. Guerra started her political communications career as a press secretary for Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, and later as a communications director for Rep. Sam Johnson. In between her time on Capitol Hill, she was tapped by The LIBRE Initiative–a national, non-partisan, non-profit grassroots organization that advances the principles and values of economic freedom to the U.S. Hispanic community–to become their first national press secretary. Guerra has appeared frequently on Univision, Telemundo, CNN Espanol, MundoFox, and Entravision.

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or in other capacities?

It’s been said before, “If not now, then when? If not us, then who?” Our country faces challenges that impact our future, now is the time to get involved, to make a change, to give back, and fight for the principles that have made our country exceptional: faith, freedom, and opportunity. I have been blessed and feel fortunate to work at the Republican National Committee where we fight to protect these principles daily. I work alongside extremely talented people who challenge and inspire me to work harder everyday — each of us can do something and motivate those around us to join the cause.

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

Elected officials need to show up and engage with Millennials where they are. Meet us on a social media platform, a college campus or in our workplace. Also, Millennials want to your words to match your actions. Talk to us about the issues we most care about — jobs, the economy, and security. Successful candidates make engaging with young voters a priority — we saw great results with several Republican candidates who did just that leading up to the 2014 midterms.

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

We must continue to engage with all communities. As a Hispanic, I know that we have an opportunity with Hispanics/Latinos — they want to hear from us and want to know that we care. The Republican National Committee has been showing up and engaging with all communities like never before, but we can all do more and a lot more work needs to be done. We must listen and explain how conservative policies benefit the lives of all Americans in a real and tangible manner.
