Chicas Latinas de Sacramento’s mission is to make a positive impact in both the Latin and Sacramento community by improving, connecting and embracing our culture and the community in which we call our home, by giving back to our community, utilizing our people and our culture to educate, inspire, and lead.

I founded Chicas Latinas de Sacramento in an effort to mobilize our community, to give to our community. This volunteer cultivation effort has turned into a civic engagement effort, in that we are building passionate and compassionate leaders who will inspire for years to come. We rely 100% on our volunteers and community donations! Our annual fundraisers are our only means of funding at the moment. My dream is for our 501(c)3 nonprofit to continue past my lifetime, in creating a culture of volunteerism and leadership in our community.

Latina on the Run: Angela’s Sacramento Summer 2014 Amuck Running Rundown

It has been about 2 months since my last blog post – and a lot has happened! Before I fill everyone in with where I’m at now, here’s a quick run down of the fun I’ve had in Sacramento, California so far. It’s been a busy summer of community, volunteer, and Latin events with Eric Ratinoff and Chicas Latinas de Sacramento… and it’s not over yet!

Before all the Hispanic Heritage Month and Dia de los Muertos events and posts come, without further adieu I give you… “the reasons I haven’t posted in ages.” 

  • Volunteered with Chicas Latinas de Sacramento, Feeding and Clothing the Homeless
  • I barely made it to (the last) Fiesta en la Calle (of the season), but I made it!
  • Attended Mexican American Vintners Association, Harvest Festival in Napa with Eric Ratinoff
  • Eric Ratinoff was Nominated (and selected) for “Best of the Bar.” View the Press release
  • Chicas Latinas members volunteered at Feria de Educación 
  • Did I mention Chicas Latinas is hosting a Shoe Drive for Hagginwood Elementary School?

Please help us reach our goal, we’re not quite there yet: http://chicasshoedrivedonate.eventbrite.com/

  • Was invited to hear President of Mexico’s, Enrique Peña Nieto, address at the California State Capitol, presented by Gov. Brown
  • El Grito de Dolores, El Día de la Independencia de México, in Sacramento is simply breathtaking!

And there’s more… wait for it! 😉 

Cien Amigos, Cinco de Mayo, una Dolores Huerta, muchos ciclistas, y los Gigantes!

This last week (or so) has been full speed, nonstop, and packed with goodness in Sacramento… with a brief trip to Los Angeles.

(Mexican) Family Stuffmore please!

AMGEN Tour of California 

Watched my beloved SF Giants lose to LA Dodgers… in Los Angeles. Ouch.

Sunday I rested, spent the day with my family (yay Mother’s Day!) and the Giants won.

Back to the grind… and catching up on emails. I’m behind in life. Speaking of being behind in life, Chicas Latinas de Sacramento’s 5 Year Anniversary dinner is this Sunday! Wowzas.

March in Sacramento: Women’s History Month & Brain Injury Awareness Month

What’s up Sacramento? Everything? No kidding!!!

First up, it’s Women’s History Month. I am honored to be listed as a Sacramento “Unsung She-ro” by Girls on the Grid‘s SACRAMENTO WOMEN MAKING HISTORY 2014! It came as a complete surprise and I truly appreciate the recognition. View the article and be sure to check out the other profiles… Sacramento is a city full of movers and shakers!!! So proud of our women.

March is also Brain Injury Awareness Month – and this is of great significance to me. I work for Eric Ratinoff, a local brain injury lawyer who also serves on the board of BIACAL. Naturally our upcoming #Network4Cause event on March 13th at Mayahuel will support Brain Injury Association of California and it’s upcoming 2014 Walk For Brain Injury. I will also be participating in the Sacramento walk event on March 30th, the rest of our staff will be volunteering! (Look for us if you’re there, Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff!)

But wait there’s more – I have a personal connection to brain injury. Some of you may recall a close friend of mine who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) a couple of years ago from an accident. After a 2 month coma, he had a 2% chance of living and a 5% chance of walking… it is a miracle and a blessing he is alive and walking! It has been a long road to recovery and the journey continues.

Walk for Brain Injury Sacramento

Networking and charity/cause events are nothing new to me, but it’s always a little different when it’s a cause I have a personal connection with. Dear people of the world: Wear your helmet! And join me at #Network4Cause benefiting BIACAL’s 7th Annual Walk for Brain Injury – Sacramento on March 13th at Mayahuel.

Angela Turned 30 and is *crawling* Amuck

I’m still running (crawling) amuck or amok, whichever you’d prefer. My days have been swamped working for Eric Ratinoff, implementing his re-branding, running the #Network4Cause event series (apply here), taking care of Chicas Latinas de Sacramento 501©3 admin work (the IRS is tons o’ fun), preparing to open up our Board of Directors, and getting ready for OUR FIRST community meeting!!!

Needless to say, I’ve fallen short and behind in some things – the overall running of my organization and our community communications have been better. I’m only one person, but I’ve come to terms with the fact that we are now a 501©3, have a board of directors, have resources coming in… Therefore, it is no longer a one (wo)man show. I trust all will work out accordingly.

Hence the purpose of our first Chicas Latinas de Sacramento Community Informational Meeting – we need help! Male, female, Latino or not, we need dedicated and experienced individuals to help further our mission. We’ll have applications for our Board of Directors, Committees, and Volunteering, something for everyone at the February 27th meeting. I completed my presentation today and am ready to inspire the next generation of Chicas Latinas leaders. It’ll be great to have an inspired and capable leadership team as we approach our 5-year-Anniversary in April!!! <– Speaking of, I really hope I’ll be able to pull off some kind of anniversary event, yikes.

***Want to learn more? I was recently featured in Vida en el Valle: OUR PEOPLE/NUESTRA GENTE: Ángela Rosas is leading the way for ‘Chicas’, Cynthia Moreno did a great job capturing my journey and mission.

Oh yea, in the midst of all this good stuff – I turned 30!!! and celebrated with family, some Chicas Latinas members, and friends!

Thank you to all who helped me celebrate ❤ xoxo ❤

#Network4Cause Sacramento Series at Mayahuel – Perk, Sol Collective Sweatshirt!

Last night was Eric Ratinoff’s #Network4Cause befitting Sol Collective in Sacramento! Although I wasn’t feeling very well the event turned out great. It was a wonderful night of food, cocktails, networking, and fundraising for Sol Collective.

Sol Collective is a community based partnership whose unique mission is to use art, education, and technology as a didactic medium to create mobilization and community empowerment. Sol Collective a 3,200 square foot community space located in Sacramento hosting art exhibitions, multimedia workshops,apprentice/mentorship programs, and community forums.

I even got this great Sol Collective sweatshirt – perfect for a casual Friday at the office.

*Pictured with my iPhone. Last night I was taking pictures at the event and couldn’t figure out why people were laughing at me… I get it now 😉
