“Las Soldaderas Yesterday Today and Tomorrow” by Mary Luevanos
MANA de Metro Detroit invites you each year to our Brindis (from brindar: to drink ceremoniously in honor of someone) Luncheon to salute outstanding women, recipients of our Adelita Award (named in honor of the dedicated women who fought in the Mexican Revolution), who go beyond daily responsibilities to promote and support the Latino community.
The actions of the women being honored today for their volunteerism, self-sacrifice and activism — demonstrate their commitment to positive change. It is their character and perseverance that gives hope and regenerates the soul.
These are women of courage who are a great example of what it means to be a member of a community. We come together to raise our voices in salute to these women whose powerful spirits soar. These are women with a purpose, a dream and determination.
