This national event encourages every chapter of the sorority to hold events during the last week of September, highlighting a theme that promotes Latino heritage and culture. This year’s theme is based around the Reproductive Rights of Latinas, the affects of the Affordable Care Act on the Latina community, and how both are tied to the importance of this year’s election. Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. When: September 24-29, 2012RAICES Week Theme: MUJERES (WOMEN): PLANTING THE SEEDS OF PROGRESSThis year's RAICES Week will take place from Monday, September 24th through Friday, September 29th 2012. As the title of our 2012 RAICES Week implies, women plant the seed to progression. Historically speaking, women have had to carry-on multiple roles at once in order to keep themselves, their families, careers and mankind in general going. A major example is the fact that women are the only sex that can bear children, continuing the growth and evolution of humanity. This theme will focus on various aspects of the lives of women, more specifically on our reproductive rights and the implications of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).We want our theme to stem from the idea of women being powerful forces in our simplest form: to be able to give the gift of life. From here we can further discuss this aforementioned power and elaborate on how it has been used against us and how with the passage of the ACA, we and other traditionally marginalized groups can claim victory in the right step to progress.For more information and events, click here.
