GRACIAS to all who attended and supported the first-ever Poderosa Collective! MiVoz.com is grateful to be a part of the efforts to build intentional connection among Latinas, uplifting and celebrating what we as Latinas bring to our community. Francesca Mayca Wegner’s idea of bringing together Latina-led and Latina-founded organizations was no doubt a success- as measured by the smiles, the new friends and the comadreando. Let’s continuing working as Latinas unidas in making Milwaukee a place where we are collaborating and building community over competition. #shesepuede
