Have you heard of Carmelita Torres? She was a part of the Bath Riots of 1917. She has been compared to Rosa Parks because she took a stand against discrimination and inhumanity. In the early 1900's, it was common practice for U.S. health officials to force Mexicans crossing the bridge into the U.S. to bathe, strip naked in front of an inspector and undergo a lice treatment. These toxic and harmful chemicals were used to kill lice and prevent typhus. A 17-year-old Mexican…


Advice to Become a Leader

We asked a few Latinitas what advice they have to become a good leader. Here is what they had to say...

Being a leader has a lot of expectations. Nevertheless, you are expected to be honest, trustworthy and confident. Leadership is about having a drive to accomplish a…

When I asked a few friends to share a word that described what it means to be Latina, I was a little surprised at first by the adjectives they came up with. Warriors and fighters are a few of the words they chose to describe the women of nuestra cultura. After reflecting on our discussion, I quickly…

Yeah That would be great, I would really like to go, but I guess I don't need a ride since it is going to be in the same building. Is there some type of ticket I need to get for the event?

yes, your welcome it was fun. There was a teen that i gave your email to, she goes to Canutillo and she said like she wants to try and start something over there. The counselor was there and the mom and they thought that would be a good idea too. so i hope she gets in contact with you. She is a writer for her schools newspaper and so thats how she got interested initially.
