STATE WIDE PROGRAMMING
Join us for our Placticas Poderosas events! Next two events:
Hispanic groups from around the state to create an organization that would address issues unique to Hispanas. A commitment to remain united, address common issues and promote Hispanic Women was a major concern then and continues now. The result was the 1987 conference in Dallas at which 200 women from every geographic area of Texas, with diverse backgrounds and occupations, discussed areas of concern to women and Latinos. Collaboration is the key to our success. Since its inception, HWNT members have come together to sponsor programs designed to cultivate the social, cultural, legal and educational interests of Hispanic women. HWNT has sponsored and supported such activities as educational/mentoring programs; Women's Rights to Vote Celebration, Hispanic Summit and Emerging Leaders Conference, HWNT's State Conference, and inter-generational programs and achievement awards and ceremonies. We believe that by women coming together in a spirit of collaboration, we can make a difference!
