1 Year Anniversary: 3 Hour Open Bar Party Boat (weather permitting)

Hornblower Cruises & Events Pier 15

February 9th 2018 as I sat down at my computer desk on my lunch break I searched on meetup for something new, something different and something that emphasized uniting afro-latinas, afro-latinos, the Latinx community and people with similar interests. I could not find it so I created "Proud Afro-latinas and the people that love them". Please join me on March 9th 2019 to celebrate 1 year of growth, 1 year of friendship and 1 year of community.
