Event Description

Hey Latinitas!  Share your cultural pride during Hispanic Heritage Month. We are kicking off a blog-a-thon and social media campaign to promote cultural pride, celebrate Latina power, highlight powerful Latina leaders and motive young Latinas. During the week of October 7th through October 13th, we are inviting guest bloggers to blog on a specific question daily.


Sunday 10/7/2012 - Why are you proud to be a Latinita?

Monday 10/8/2012 - Why do you think Latinas make strong leaders?

Tuesday 10/9/2012 - What is your favorite Hispanic tradition?

Wednesday 10/10/2012 - Who is a Latina role model that you look up to? Why?

Thursday 10/11/2012 - What would you like others to know about Latino Culture? What is the biggest misconception?

Friday 10/12/2012 - What are your future hopes for the Latin community?

Saturday 10/13/12 - What is your top piece of advice for younger Latinas?


Young Latinas are also invited to take the social media world by storm to celebrate our culture by targeting a specific social media outlet Monday through Friday of that week. Below is an outline of our social media campaign. Start brainstorming your ideas and invite your friends to participate too.

Social Media Activities:

Monday 10/8/2012 - Twitter - Tweet why you are proud to be a Latina using the hashtags #latinitas & #latinapower.

Tuesday 10/9/2012 - Pintrest - Post a picture of yourself on Pintrest holding a sign saying, "I'm proud to be a Latina because ..."

Wednesday 10/10/2012 - Instagram & Flickr - Post a photo representing the Latin/Hispanic culture (abstract or literal).

Thursday 10/11/2012 - Facebook - Update your facebook status on what being a Latina means to you or post a link to a blog you've worked on this past week.
