Lydia Hernandez is a former state representative, an elected Cartwright School District board member, and a candidate for the Phoenix City Council. Last year, she traveled to Texas for an education association conference.

The organization behind the event says she’s not welcome back.

After the conference, the Austin-based Mexican American School Boards Association (MASBA) condemned Hernandez’s behavior in a letter and banned her from the group’s events in Texas until at least 2020.
