Many of you know the crew putting this together--This event is brought to you by Latinas, but ALL ARE WELCOME. Men and women, Latinos and non-Latinos, are invited to join us for a fabulous and fun night."...I believe deeply that we canot solve the challenges of your time unless we solve them together - unless we perfect our union by understanding that we may have different stories, but we hold common hopes; that we may not look the same and we may not have come from the same place, but we all want to move in the same direction - towards a better future for our children and our grandchildren. This belief comes from my unyielding faith in the decency and generosity of the American people." ~Barack Obama
Together, we can help elect Barack Obama and make real change happen for our country, now and in the future. Please see details below and on the attached flyer and forward this invite to your friends and colleagues!Pa'lante!Hope to see you,Mayra
