JOIN LATINAS UNIDAS
We are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month highlighting Latinas that are making a difference in our community.
Kudos to them for going the extra mile!
Within the frame of Mexico's Independence Day, on September 16 we celebrated Diana Casais-Almanza. This Latina from Mexico living in Rochester is a writer, teacher, interpreter, and the founder of book club El Cafecito Literario. This club engages fans of literature in Spanish into monthly discussions, good conversation and camaraderie. Under Diana's watch it has grown an international circle of over 100 members from Mexico, the U.S., among others, since its beginning 10 years ago.
Thank you Diana for promoting Hispanic culture and language through good literature.
In honor of Costa Rica's Independence Day on September 15 we highlighted local tica Tatiana Warren, owner of Pura Vida Ville restaurant, serving Mexican and Costa Rican food in Rochester, NY.
Tatiana donated meals to seniors right when the pandemic hit, before they had to close for the quarantine.
Best wishes, Tatiana! Looking forward to a soon reopening of your restaurant.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Latinas Unidas, we regret to announce that the ¡Soy Unica! ¡Soy Latina! Rally (SUSL) on Saturday, May 2 at Rochester Institute of Technology, has been canceled. While the LU Board and the rally committee are very disappointed that our event will not take place as planned, we understand and prioritize the health of our community and families, and so we are taking the appropriate measures to help prevent the spread of COVID19.
We look forward to another successful Rally in the near future.
