Show Up: How to Give to the Sacramento Community

Admittedly, I’m a bit of a solo-rider and prefer to work alone, but I’m also a sucker for great teamwork. We all have strengths and weaknesses, this is what makes teamwork so grand. It feels amazing to contribute to something you care about knowing that even if the contribution might seem small to you, will make a difference, is needed, and is appreciated. 🙌

I don’t have a lot of money or time to give, but I can definitely give of my knowledge and experience… especially to something that was once so cherished in our community. This is why I serve on the board of directors for Festival de la Familia! The past is in the past, I’m doing my part so Festival can have a future. 

Support what you care about… no matter how small you think your contribution may be. You might be amazed by just how much of an asset you can be. * Insert shameless Chicas Latinas de Sacramento plug here. 👈  Whatever cause, event, or organization is close to your heart… I urge you to simply show up for them.

Last night Festival wrapped up its final board meeting of the year and we are excited for 2016. It’s great to see the progress that has been made in the last few months and our members are looking forward to conducting another round of board interviews on January 7th. Good things are coming!

Check out our “Year in Review,” we made some great accomplishments in 2015!

Chicas Latinas, 2015 Year in Review! 

Real-talk: I made the decision to turn my, then 3 year old, community organization into a nonprofit in 2012 because it was TOO big for me. I needed a board, I needed funds, I needed help… I needed the community. Our membership was larger than I could handle, the volunteer requests were coming from every direction, and the demand for Latina leaders in the community was far too great to fulfill on my own. At the time, both personal and Chicas resources were depleted – but I pushed through with the belief that the/our community would support what it wanted, needed, and was asking for. I needed the community, because it was clear that the community needed us. I’ve always had issues “asking,” but today I’m asking… not for me, not even for Chicas Latinas, but for what we represent in our community. A shift in Latin@ culture and identity in Sacramento. A culture, and future, of volunteerism, civic engagement, and Latina leadership.

Please consider donating this #GivingTuesday (and beyond) to help us reach our goal! Learn more about our GoFundMe campaign:
