THIS WEEK (Aug. 6-10) is the 2012 Latina Week of Action's ¡SOY PODEROSA! (I'M POWERFUL!) Campaign, organized by the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH).

Under the rallying cry of their ongoing "¡Soy Poderosa!” campaign, stories of Latina leadership and civic engagement are being highlighted. We know that Latinas are actively engaged in shaping our families and communities. But we aren’t always seen as the powerful constituency that we are. The ¡Soy Poderosa! campaign puts the work and strength of Latinas at the forefront.

Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. is supporting the ¡Soy Poderosa! campaign purely in an effort to highlight the work Latinas, as well as our own Hermanas, are already doing in our respective communities. As such, Lambda Pi Chi acknowledges that for all our community service work WE ARE PODEROSAS.

While Lambda Pi Chi cannot take a formal stand in support of any of the NLIRH's various reproductive health programs, missions or values, we feel that the ¡Soy Poderosa! campaign aligns itself with our mission and pursuit of community empowerment and advancement. And in support of community service efforts that focus on Latino populations, Lambda Pi Chi would like to stand in solidarity for the ¡Soy Poderosa! campaign.
