Denis Nolasco, coordinator of the Malave Leadership Academy’s Student Investment Advocates program, was selected, along with 22 other US mid-level professionals, to be a Legislative Fellow for the Partners of the Americas (http://www.partners.net/partners/Legislative_Fellows.asp) program. As part of this initiative, Denis was placed at Semillas for Democracy, a Paraguayan non-profit working to increase government transparency and civic participation.  During her three-week placement, she assisted in developing a European Union initiative, designed to mobilize civil society around electoral reform to foster greater inclusion of traditionally marginalized groups.
