Now, let’s continue with the information about the Second Annual «Poderosas» Summit in Washington, D.C.

During October 6 and 7, more than a hundred young Latinas from all across the country will gather.

They represent different nonprofit organizations and government agencies, as reported by Poder Latinx in a statement.

«Poderosas» is a program that began in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2. Empowering Them to Be Agents of Change

The aim is to provide the necessary tools for developing civic leadership skills among American Latinas.

The primary goal of this initiative is to transform these young Latinas into agents of change in their respective communities.

It also aims to motivate them to eventually run for elected positions in their city, county, or even at the state level.

«We will also discuss the barriers we will face in the 2024 elections,» said Yadira Sánchez, executive director of Poder Latinx.

3. Encouraging Participation and Voting in Elections

«We will train these young Latinas to commit to impactful actions and drive change,» Sánchez added.

«We focus on informing and empowering young Latinos so they don’t remain passive on the issues that matter most to us,» explained the director.

«Especially to encourage them to participate and vote in all elections,» Sánchez added.

Around 120 participants will engage with speakers from organizations such as Planned Parenthood and Black Millennials for Flint, private companies like META, and various government offices.

4. Empowering Latinos

«Many of us come from families where perhaps our parents couldn’t vote or came from countries where voting wasn’t as accessible,» commented Sánchez.

«By empowering Latinos to use their voice and register to vote, we know that more Latinos will become civically engaged,» she added.

This involves «getting involved in defending democracy and perhaps even running for public office.»

Hispanic Heritage Month, which extends until October 15, is the busiest time of the year for many Latinx organizations.

«At Poder Latinx, we will continue to organize many events this month and throughout the rest of the year for the entire community in all the states where we operate,» said Sánchez.

In 2023, the organization opened offices in California and Texas, joining the existing ones in Georgia, Florida, Arizona, and Washington.

Some events are planned around November 1, when the organization celebrates what is known as the National Day of Latina Civic Engagement.
