Hope to see you there!

Carolyn’s Note: I’ve been to this event in the past and it’s very festive, in celebration of girls and women. Plus I heard this year they are honoring some of us women working in alternative media areas (like me). Join the fun on March 20, at 102 E. 31st Street (just east of 6th Avenue) at Fortin de las Flores in South Tucson. The official International Women’s Day was on March 8 but it’s never too late to celebrate the work of dedicated mujeres/women in Tucson.

  1. “Empowered Voices” indeed was the theme for this year’s celebration at Fortin de Las Flores. 5 other women (besides me) received awards (beautiful handmade dolls): Anna Keene, community activist; Amanda Shauger (whom I know, Community Engagement director at KXCI); Alejandra Pablo, another community activist; Matice Moore, Prog. Director of the African Am. Student Affairs at the UA; and Raquel Cristina Mogollon Totton, artist/songwriter/organizer for Global Justice Center and Rising Tide Tucson. Opening prayers & dances by Danza Mexica Cuauhtemoc, booths selling jewelry and artwork, along with Planned Parenthood, Emerge!, Betts Putnam-Hidalgo for TUSD School Bd. Thanks to all who attended this year. Feeling proud to be included with these strong mujeres, who are all helping our community.

  2. Have fun!

    And before some idiot starts whining about it, yes, there is an International Men’s Day, it’s 11/19.

    Why we need one I do not know, but there it is.
