Eva Longoria delivered a powerful and moving keynote at TheWrap’s Power Women Summit in Los Angeles on Friday, saying that people in Hollywood are “largely responsible for much of the unconscious bias that is against people of color” and that “Latinas are the last to find their voices amplified in this industry.”

“What studies show is that we are being erased,” Longoria told a room of 2,000 attendees. “This goes beyond underrepresentation. When you aren’t on screen in the media, you are being erased. you don’t exist. And the stories from Hollywood don’t come close to representing the complexity of our community. This is a problem — the demographics of America are changing and it’s changing in a very Latin way, and this cultural shift is freaking people out.”
