In commemoration of July 25th International Day of Women of African Descent, I would like to invite you to join us on July 31st at Boston City Hall Plaza.

The day was founded in 1992 at a meeting in Santo Domingo by Afrolatinamerican, Afrocaribbean and Diaspora Women. It was from there that the Red de Mujeres Afro was born.

We see this day as a reclaiming, celebrating the light and work of Women of African descent from all over.

If you would like to say a few words on the plaza, please email me separately. I will also be reaching out to a few of you one on one. If you would like your organization to say a few words, please reach out.

Please share with your networks and lets show up together. Attached is the flyer.

I look forward to seeing you on July 31st.
