2012 Latina Week of Action for RJ banner

Next week begins our 3rd annual Latina Week of Action for Reproductive Justice. It's a time each August where we dedicate a week to taking action, focusing on an issue that matters to the Latina community and making our voices heard.

You can read more about all the activities happening next week here.

Each year we host a blog carnival during the Week of Action as a way to stir up conversation online about our community and our issues. The theme this year is ¡Soy Poderosa!

It's about claiming our power as a community and highlighting all the ways we're working to shape the future. It's about saying we are here and we matter.

To join the blog carnival, simply write a post on your blog or tumblr talking about the ways in which you use your power. How do you influence your community? Do you participate in local government? Do you vote? Do you organize to improve the conditions of your community? Do you encourage your elected officials to take actions that represent you and your issues? Do you talk with your friends and family about the issues you care about? Volunteer with local groups?

We all participate in our own way and that is why we are Poderosas.

In your post, link back to our Week of Action page and send the link to miriam@latinainstitute.org. We'll include your post in our round-ups and materials about the Week of Action.

You can also join the week of action by uploading a photo of yourself with a Soy Poderosa sign to our gallery. Details here.
