This community gathering, hosted by VidaAfrolatina, is designed to honor our collective histories and celebrate ourselves as Black Latina women and girls. We will also plant seeds for upcoming action on several issues including child sexual abuse, immigration and international advocacy—from a Black Latinx perspective. In recognition of the day, Howard University is scheduled to hold a day of celebration, healing, sisterhood and community building on July 25 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Founders Library, 500 Howard Place, NW. The event is free, but participants can register for the event at eventbrite.com.
