1st Latina Women Encounter in New York City

(corner of Amsterdam Avenue)

A Word From The Organizers of the Event

Through this gathering we are following up on years of participation in movements committed to advancing the feminist agenda, in and out of the United States.

Our hope is that the Encounter will serve as a platform for women, particularly Latinas to meet and engage in conversations, build connections, and continue to weave creative expressions that will birth and support transformative actions in our New York City communities. Our vision is the creation of a society free of patriarchy, where girls and women – as well as men- can develop in all spheres of life: social, economic, political and spiritual.

Simultaneous Workshops:
Evelyn Suero (Handmade Greeting Cards); Milagros Batista (Basics of Knitting); Ana Maria Hoffman ( Art and Nature: Healing Powers); Belgica Mejia & Mercedes Polanco (Jewelry Making Techniques); Mino Lora (The People’s Theater: Exercises and Techniques);  Jana Lynne Umipig (I am a Super Womyn: Transformative Illustration of a Heroine); Tanya Torres (Making Books in Miniature)
