It is important for us as Afro-Latina’s to come together and unify in order to see change. We must sit back and close our eyes and think about how we can begin to see a change.We want to be represented and acknowledged in a positive light and the only way to do that is to support one another and join hands in the strive for modification in our community. This is by attending events and interacting with those who also find this subject of empowering Afro-Latina’s inspiring. I promise I won’t leave you hanging on the fence. I have your backs and I will provide you with some events to check out that are working towards celebrating the lives of Afro- Latina’s .
