There was a party at the Hilton on Thursday (8/5/10) and it was INOLVIDABLE (UNFORGETTABLE)!
WHAT A NIGHT! My hips are still swaying from all the shaking they did at the Social Fiesta. GREAT people, delicious food, delightful music, and even a Zumba instruction! It doesn’t get any better than that. I even caught a glimpse at the hotel staff shaking it and smiling from ear to ear every now and again.
Que Que? Keep reading….
For a few months now, I have been counting down the days to the party of THE summer –The Social Fiesta!
I was intrigued at first by all the “Wepa’s” and “#Latism” shout outs on Twitter and slowly began to grow a deeper connection to Latism. Latism was so much more than the *abrazos* being sent from one “pana” to another via Twitter. I should have known though … the usual parties on Thursday nights, that asked the questions that made you think about our roles as Latina women.
Latism revealed itself to me as a group of amazing people, taking a stand for me. I am Latism. We are the voices that speak as one. We are the lending hands, the arm around the shoulder, the confident hand shake, and the ones who can break it down on the dance floor!
I remember when Latism began its extraordinary efforts to send 5 Latina Blogueras to Blogher this year and accomplished it! Not only did they meet their goal, they went even further and raised the bar EVEN HIGHER and held a fundraiser via Twitter that helped send another 3 Latina Blogueras to Blogher! Ain’t that amazing?
Regular people, just like you and I, working together, to help one another, going forward and changing lives.
If you missed it, no worries, its only the beginning!
