Our Speak Up Summit Review

We had over 10 organizations involved in this project!

We are thankful to all the women and individuals who spoke!

We pulled all the stops for this event. Two of our content creators were involved. We only work with Brown or Black content creators. Guia Flores did pre-event practicing, Britney Sinclair did all of the social media, and Yael and Laura (speakers) assisted us with interviews and consulting.

We are grateful to the support from Social Media Breakfast Club for their grant support. Shout out to Park Bank and Centro Hispano for supporting the speakers. We had so many people order the T-Shirt, and a couple of people ordered the "bring a Friend" tickets.

For some of our speakers, it was the first time they had been paid to speak.

For some, it was their first time using social media to promote their work. Working with Vanessa Castillo was very special!

Thank you to the speakers and the community that sustain them to do what they do. Mujeres rarely are ever working alone. We have people supporting us, family, and supporting ourselves is work too.
