In honor of our 10th anniversary, the Senate of the State of Texas recognized Latinitas with the Senate Proclamation No 16 sponsored by Senator Kirk Watson. We are humbled by this great recognition of our 10 years of empowering young Latinitas.
“The tremendous work that you do for the community of Latinitas is known far and wide. You have given birth to a world-wide phenomenon which has taken hold of the hearts and minds of Latinas everywhere. To honor this special anniversary, I have sponsored and enclose for you, Senate Proclamation 16.
Whereas, This exceptional nonprofit organization has become an invaluable mentoring program for Hispanic girls; it began its work by publishing a digital magazine written by young Latinas so that they could tell their own stories and strengthen their self-esteem.
Whereas, Latinitas and its corps of volunteers have had a profound impact on the lives of thousands of girls; these girls have benefited from the encouragement and experience of their mentors, many of whom were the first in their families to graduate from college and joined the mentoring program to pass along their success; this exemplary organization is truly deserving of recognition for its many achievements and its work in the community; now, therefore be it
Proclaimed, That the Senate of the State of Texas hereby commend Latinitas on its exceptional work in mentoring young girls and extend best wishes for continued success as this outstanding organization celebrates its 10th anniversary; and, be its further.
Proclaimed, That the copy of this Proclamation be prepared for the organization as an expression of high regards from the Texas Senate.”
