Actress Rosario Dawson headlined an event last evening for Voto Latino, an organization she co-founded, aimed at getting the Latino population to fill out their census forms.

Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis – the first Latina Cabinet member and White House domestic policy advisor Melody Barnes also spoke on a panel organized by Voto Latino’s Maria Teresa Kumar. PBS’ Maria Hinojosa moderated.

In the crowd: Tammy Haddad, Lani Hay, Lee Brenner, Christina Sevilla, Politico’s Kiki Ryan, CBS’ Christine Delargy and Kaylee Hartung and Tim Burger – did you know that he and Rosario are BFF??

Overheard at the cocktail hour, Rosario: “Where’s Burger?” The two became chummy after a White House Correspondents Association Dinner a few years ago.

Also overheard – Secretary Solis’ nephew asking CBS producers who Rosario Dawson was…after snapping a pic with her.
