Â¿CÃ³mo esta tu corazÃ³n?
A dear friend of mine always asks this question, â€œhow is your heart?â€ I find it pertinent to ask this given the turbulent times we are enduring.
With much turmoil, uncertainty, pain, and many struggles our communities are fighting and facing; mi corazÃ³n esta triste but also hopeful. We stand in solidarity with our familia in Standing Rock! We are with youâ€”we will continue to persevere for Cambio Social/Social Change. Letâ€™s all please take action! Go to our Facebook page to read and share informational links about this important matter and other injustices our gente is experiencing.Â I write this brief note to remind ourselves that we have each other. En la lucha, siempre. We are Mujeres Activas!
I also write to inform you that due to unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances, Eastern Washington University will not be hosting the Summer Institute in 2017! Please know that as soon as I was informed about this newsâ€”my first reaction was to reach out to several MALCSistas, from east to west. Â I am still in communication with an institution and will hopefully have an answer before heading to the National Womenâ€™s Studies Association conference. I/we will keep you updated.
Please take care MALCSistas. Cuida tu corazÃ³n.
