Latina Surge National, a registered 501c3 nonprofit, has launched this platform with PowHer New York, and many other invested empowerment organizations and supporters (see community partner logos below).

This is a fully inclusive event inviting anyone who supports inclusion to sign up.  Registration is required.

Who is a #mamacita?
Anyone committed to sharing their VOICE and VISION in unity, to help shape comprehensive societal recovery and economic stability for women, Black and Multicultural communities of color. Our Latina/x goal is to actively self-empower and engage to close gaps in racial and gender equality.

Many of us recognize that the term ‘mamacita’ has been used in different contexts.  We are empowered to take back this endearing term recognizing that ‘mamacitas’ in Latinx villages throughout the Caribbean Islands, Central and South America, and the ‘mamas’ in villages thoughtout Africa, are the women in the community that uphold the community, from the greatest celebrations of giving life to the most challenging of circumstances in the circle of life as exemplified by Artist, Laura Hoyos, in our #10000Mamacitas logo.  

We believe that it is time to proactively take back this word away from anyone using it against us, inappropriately or disrespectfully.  Mothers — Mamacitas — Mamas —  keep families going; keep their communities going.  

Women deserve respect.  With the amplified racial and gender disparities realized through the COVID19 pandemic, we need to VOICE our support of a VISION STATEMENT reflecting what ideal inclusion authentically means.  

Virtually via Zoom and Facebook Streaming.  The first 500 tickets are FREE and give access to multiple Cafecito expert speakers on Zoom; the remaining 9500 tickets (for June 24th and for re-screenings) cost $8.

Spanish translations will be provided for the Headlining speakers and for Cafecito expert speakers.

We want to share our stories of perseverance, coming together with our collective VOICE and VISION to help shape comprehensive societal recovery and economic stability for women, Black and Multicultural communities of color. 

Our Latina/x goal is to actively engage to close gaps in racial and gender equality by creating a VISION STATEMENT with our active input (via event surveys) to be presented to government officials and business leaders for greater overall inclusion and positive outcomes.  

We plan to share our VISION STATEMENT perspectives with PowHer New York as a supplement to the overarching VISION STATEMENT that PowHer New York is organizing with over 100 empowerment organizations

First 500 attendees to sign up gain FREE access to the Zoom virtual event with Expert Guest Speakers.

Los primeros 500 asistentes en registrarse obtienen acceso GRATUITO al evento virtual Zoom.

KEYNOTE
SPEAKER

Anna Maria Chávez is the Executive Director & Chief Executive Officer of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) and serves as an ex-officio director on its Board of Directors. NSBA, the leading advocate for public education, represents 49 state school boards associations and one territory association, and their more than 90,000 locally elected school board members. To advance the association’s mission, serve its members, and champion educational equity, Chávez leads a team of policy, member services, legal, communications, and business experts.

Chávez is a skilled, multi-dimensional leader. Prior to joining NSBA, she was Executive Vice President and Chief Growth Officer for the National Council on Aging where she oversaw the day-to-day operations of the National Council on Aging (NCOA), the nation’s oldest service and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the health and economic security of older Americans. Chávez ensured that NCOA’s fiscal, operations, fundraising, marketing, consumer experience, advocacy, human capital, technology, programmatic, and organizational culture strategies were effectively implemented across all segments of the organization. She led the NCOA operations team in achieving NCOA’s 2020 social impact goal one year early in 2019.

As NCOA’s Chief Strategy Officer and Senior Vice President for External Affairs, Chávez led the teams responsible for marketing and communications, fund development, strategic partnerships, public policy, and advocacy and the National Institute for Senior Centers.  

Chávez developed the leadership skills growing up in Eloy, Arizona, that would propel her into a career of public service. Her desire to transform the world through servant leadership led her to Yale University, before pursuing a juris doctorate at the University of Arizona. She held numerous posts in President Bill Clinton’s administration and later returned to Arizona to serve then-governor Janet Napolitano.  

Chávez’s success led to her appointment as CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, where she served from 2011-2016 as the first woman of color to lead the 104-year group with 2.7 million members in over 90 countries and 59 million alumnae in America. In 2016, she was named as one of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders by Fortune magazine, cited for her vision and creativity in working to revitalize the Girl Scout brand for a new century and was named number 22 by Fast Company in its annual list of the most creative people in business.

As one of the world’s top experts on women’s leadership, youth development, and aging issues, Chávez achieved that recognition by drawing on her 25 years of public service and nonprofit leadership. She brings a wealth of experience from previous legal, public policy, nonprofit management, and brand management positions in Arizona, Texas, Washington, D.C., and New York City.

Chávez’s keen insights and dynamic presentations have inspired thousands of individuals around the globe to lead authentically and she has helped organizations work together more collaboratively and create dynamic impact. Chávez has appeared on CBS News, NBC’s The Today Show, FOX News Channel, CNBC’s Squawk Box, CNN, Bloomberg Radio, National Public Radio, and was a contributing writer on Huffington Post.

Why #10000Mamacitas & Cultural Face Painting Challenge?
Please Note New Date: June 24th 12pm-1:30pm EST

Whether it be the “mamas” in African villages or the “mamacitas” in the Caribbean Islands, Central and South American villages, these matriarchs of community are the empowered women supporting their communities.  We come together in our NY/NJ regional community, set back, but determined not to be defeated in the face of the COVID19 pandemic.  Yes, we are in the epicenter of this global pandemic, but we are empowered to hold up our community with our collective voice and vision of opportunity to close gaps in racial and gender equality.  

Ya se trate de las “mamas” en las aldeas africanas o las “mamacitas” en las aldeas de América Central y del Sur, estas matriarcas de la comunidad son los ancianos con poder que apoyan a sus comunidades. Nos reunimos en nuestra comunidad regional de NY / NJ, retrocedimos, pero decidimos no ser derrotados ante la pandemia de COVID19. Sí, estamos en el epicentro de esta pandemia mundial, pero estamos facultados para mantener a nuestra comunidad con nuestra voz colectiva y nuestra visión de oportunidad para cerrar brechas en la igualdad de género.

RESOURCES

Anti-racism library curated by LeanIn.Org 

The events of the last few weeks have shone a light on the horrific impacts of systemic racism and white supremacy. From a white woman calling the police and putting Christian Cooper’s life in danger simply because he is a Black man, to the deaths of Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and David McAtee at the hands of police, what we’re seeing shocks the conscience—and yet it is and has been the reality of life for so many Black Americans for far too long.

For the Black women in our community, we know this is an incredibly traumatizing time. It is not your job to educate non-Black people about the way racism shows up in the workplace or in our day-to-day lives. For the white and non-Black women of color in our community, it’s crucial that we come together to internalize the roots of this violence and do our own work to end white supremacy.

Lean In Organization hase compiled the following list of recommended articles and books to help you inform yourselves and take action.

Many of the resources in this library were sourced from other anti-racism collections:
