Latinas Rising Rio Grande Valley Book Launch
January 3 @ 11:30 pm - January 4 @ 2:30 am
Latinas Rising is a collection of stories from women that have struggled, cried, hurt, screamed, ran, prayed, and laughed through adversity. We are sisters, mothers, wives, leaders, but most importantly we are storytellers. Latinas are underrepresented in every profession, we are underpaid compared to other women, we represent high statistics in domestic violence, sexual assault, and mental illness. It’s time that we collectively create change in our communities through the sharing of our stories.Learn the stories of 25 Latina Women that overcame unimaginable obstacles of domestic violence, cyber-bullying, mental illness, self doubt, sexual assault, and so much more. You will be inspired.The event includes a Latina Empowerment art show with RGV local artists displaying and selling their art, light bites, panel discussion with featured authors, and a Latina DJ. Ticketed sales will go directly to a local RGV Latino(A) non profit. Dress to Impress. Local Media will be invited. Latinas Rising Anthology books will be available for sale.https://www.facebook.com/events/345714875859765/
