    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.

    Sincerely, 

    Joann Santos                   

    President Latinas Unidas
