Chicas Latinas De Sacramento has been busy planning some awesome events and although we’ve missed the social interaction with our community, we have maintained engagements much as we could during this pandemic. As the new year has begun, we remain hopeful that in-person gatherings are in our near future. However, we have found a way to still serve our community and remain connected as much as we possibly can. Check out what we have coming up this month, mark your calendars and get involved!

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) Panel with National Girls & Women of Color Council Inc. Friday 4/16
Our very own Lorena Campos of Chicas Latinas De Sacramento was one of the five panelists participating in a discussion that explored what Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) means and looks like for our young girls and women of color. What kind of world are we envisioning which is free from sexism, body shaming, harassment, violence and oppression? How can we collectively work towards this vision? NGWCC is a non-profit organization formed to be a council for educators, administrators, business leaders, parents/guardians, students, community leaders, and community organizations to address and discuss historical and societal perspectives, conduct research, educate, mentor, and be advocates for girls and women of color. We look forward to sharing her upcoming blog post.
