International Afro-Latin American, Afro-Caribbean and Diaspora Women's Day
Día Internacional de la Mujer Afrolatinoamericana, Afrocaribeña y de la Diáspora
Dia Internacional da Mulher Afro-Latino-Americana e Afro-Caribenha e da Diáspora
On July 25, 2017, we commemorated International Afro-Latin American, Afro-Caribbean and Diapora Women's Day at Howard University in Washington, D.C. This community gathering was designed to honor our collective histories and celebrate ourselves as Black Latin American women and girls. We focused on healing and wellness, and planted seeds for upcoming advocacy and action on several issues including child sexual abuse, immigration and international solidarity—from a Black Latinx perspective.
