On Saturday, December 3, 2016, I will be participating in a special workshop, AfroLatinas in the Digital Diaspora: Reconnecting Identity through Social Media, at Lánzate (12/2 – 12/4) hosted by Mijente. I am proud to share the panel with Afro-Boricua, Omilani Alarcon, Singer & Filmmaker of Latinegras and Afro-Dominican, Angie Galván-Rodríguez, creator of AfroLatinaNatural. There will also be an exclusive screening of the Latinegras® documentary, which captures the journey to self-identity through an Afro-Latina lens. View the trailer here.
Join our workshop’s conversation on social media at #AfroDigiDiaspora and film discussion at #LatinegrasDoc.

Lánzate is a national convening organized by Mijente, a digital and grassroots hub for Latinx and Chicanx organizing and movement building. The convening brings together Latinx and Chicanx identified change-makers who seek to build social movement and community that is pro-Black, pro-LGBTQ, pro-worker, pro-immigrant, pro-planet rooted in self determination. The 3 day gathering features workshops and strategy sessions across issue and geography, art, music, connection and exchange. This year the conference will be held at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, in San Juan, Puerto Rico this year to create a bridge for solidarity amongst Latinx people and galvanize support to address the ongoing crisis on the island.
