LatinaCon 2019 : Interview coming with the Founders of Latinas Rising

Latinas Rising is an organization focused creating social change in the Latinx community. We seek to educate and advocate on a variety of social justice topics such as, Latinx mental health, violence against women, education, and civic engagement. We believe all Latinx stories are important and we choose to celebrate Latinas working, “boots on the ground.” 

Latinas Rising is excited to host the 1st annual LatinaCon November 9th, 2019 in Houston, Texas. Our theme is “The Era of the Latina.” LatinCon 2019 is a gathering of powerful women bringing awareness, education, and advocacy to current topics affecting Latinx women. Our goal is to bring women together to empower them through workshops and panel discussions that are socially relevant, dynamic, and inspiring 

LatinaCon will have panels addressing topics ranging from Advocacy and Law, Afro-Latina Identity, Latinx Mental Health, and Latinas in Education. LatinaCon will also have an auction and a vendor/business floor.

Black American or a African-American, began in this country as a diminished experience. We were 3/5ths of a human. Subjugated, denied education, denied having family and only given the scraps. Here comes jazz, in order to learn how to play music Black folks had to learn by ear, from watching other people perform and from knowledge passed down. That’s Bootleg Like Jazz.
