Why is Cabinet diversity so important?

WHAT MATTERS: Why is it important to interest groups representing Black and Latino voters to have Cabinet members that look like that them?

GARCIA: It is important to Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans that they have a place at the table. Because if you're not at the table, you're on the menu. And under the Trump administration, many groups felt like were not being represented by almost an entirely all-White Cabinet. And if you have a Cabinet that looks like America, it's going to reflect America's values and it's going to make America stronger.
