Event PickWe shouldn’t need events like LATINAFest, but we do, now more than ever. Pay equity for all women is still far from reach, and for women of color it’s even more of a distant dream. Add to this sad fact, the reduction of women’s rights to our own bodies and these kinds of gatherings are essential. We had the honor of being a spotlight speaker at this event a few years ago, and it was inspiring to say the least.

Spotlighting National Women’s Business Week, this year’s event considers how the “Mind, Body & Soul” of Latina entrepreneurs can contribute to a more enriching culture, in particular within the business sector. “From new startups to those who have scaled their business and are creating a pathway for Latinas,” the one-day festival, gathers Latina entrepreneurs, thinkers, activists, artists, supporters and over 100 small businesses as vendors. Beauty, wellness, food, and kid’s stuff will have a presence and products to buy.

There will also be a “Goddess” procession and fashion show, spoken word, readings, yoga, and Women Empowerment Panel, and a taped episode of TheTRENDTalk Show hosted by the fest’s creators. At LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, 501 N Main St.; Saturday, Oct. 22, 9:30 a.m. culturela.org/event/latinafest-mind-body-soul-2022/
