The 3rd annual Latina Week of Action for Reproductive Justice starts today August 6-10, 2012! The theme “¡Soy Poderosa!” centers our power is as Latinas. Keep an eye out for our posts discussing our power!
Below is information about the blog carnival from the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health:
Under the rallying cry of our ongoing “¡Soy Poderosa!” campaign, we will be lifting up stories of Latina leadership and civic engagement as well as taking action across the country and online to demonstrate our power and hold decision makers accountable.
We know that Latinas are actively engaged in shaping our families and communities. But we aren’t always seen as the powerful constituency that we are. ¡Soy Poderosa! puts our work and strength at the forefront, in support of our reproductive justice agenda.
Ways to get involved:
Show Your Power: Go here to submit your Soy Poderosa photo! Let’s show how powerful our community really is.
Take Action for Health Justice: Tell your governor to fully implement the health care law and protect Latina health.
