Fuerza Latina

 During International Women’s Week, the City of Annapolis launched a Latina women’s empowerment initiative, “Fuerza Latina.” The program is being organized by Mayor Gavin Buckley’s Office of Hispanic Community Services. Beginning March 8 (International Women’s Day) through December 18 (International Migrant’s Day), the Hispanic community services team will share virtual empowerment videos, forums and know-your-rights information.

Fuerza Latina will highlight Latinas in Annapolis through video storytelling, sharing flyers addressing women’s rights, educating the public through virtual forums, and sharing educational materials that address issues directly affecting Latinas.

For more information on this program or to nominate a woman to be profiled, contact Laura Gutiérrez at lgutierrez@annapolis.gov.
