24th Annual Adelante Mujer Latina Conference
The Adelante Mujer Latina Conference is a college and career event for girls ages 12 to 21 in Pasadena, California. Our cofounder, Karla Vargas, gave a talk called "Comida: The story of our food, culture, and health." It was very positively received by students and parents alike. One participant shared:
When you introduced [animal rights] by connecting it to basic human rights, specifically for people of color, I have not seen it approached that way, and it has opened my eyes to see that it is all connected. It is one large social justice issue that needs to be addressed through all aspects.
