Soy Poderosa Blog Carnival

Latina Week of Action for Reproductive Justice logo

During our 3rd annual Latina Week of Action for Reproductive Justice we'll be hosting a Soy Poderosa blog carnival. 

Each year we invite bloggers, activists and allies to write about an issue the matters to the Latina community, and this year we'll be writing about what civic power looks like in our community. 

¡Soy Poderosa! is about showing what makes the Latina community powerful and how we are influencing the political process.

We know that Latinas are actively engaged in shaping our families and communities. But we aren’t always seen as the powerful constituency that we are.

Join us during the week of August 6-10, 2012, and write about how you are poderosa/powerful. You can write a post on your own blog or tumblr and we'll include it in our blog carnival round-up, or you can submit a guestpost for possible publication at the NLIRH blog

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.
