Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Celebrating Women's history month at Downtown Art Market

On Saturday, at the Downtown Art Market in El Paso we celebrate Women’s History Month.   Latinitas, Mujeres de la Tierra and the Girl Scouts were there and there was many other people selling their arts and crafts.  Also at the festival there was live music, poetry, arts and crafts activities. There were some performers such as Amalia Te Castro who sang beautifully in Spanish and English. Another performer was Cemelli de Aztlan who told the story of “La Llorona” and she inspired me to honor my culture.  I was really interested in the performance of Krystal Oblinger because she recited a poem and she also gave a poetry workshop.

I have to admit that my favorite part of all the celebration was the Flash Mob by Latinitas. We worked so hard to learn the dance and the turnout was amazing. We performed a song called “Break the Chain” by Tena Clark. One Billion Rising is a worldwide campaign that encourages people to learn the choreography and to dance as a way to protest against woman violence. The flash mob that we performed is to encourage action against women violence. The website offers more information about this movement. I’m proud of all my latinitas because they learned the choreography really fast. As Interns, volunteers, members of Latinitas but most important as women, we joined our spirits to break the chains of women violence.
