Guest speaker for Sigma Lambda Upsilon/ Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. Alpha Xi Chapter's "Girl Effect: Voices of the Unheard" event.
Helen Yu Holguin, proud sister of Sigma Lambda Upsilon: We are an organization of diverse, college-educated and professional women dedicated to uplifting traditionally marginalized groups by serving as a voice and means of empowerment. Each year our chapter hosts a Girl Effect Fundraising Dinner concentrating on a particular theme. The Girl Effect is a call to action to put girls at the heart of the post-2015 development agenda. This campaign has 5 goals and 4 principles that can create a better future for girls and end poverty for the world. If you would like to learn more feel free to visit www.girleffect.org. A portion of our proceeds from this annual event is donated to our LADYS Program, which stands for Leadership, Advancement, and Development of our Young Sisters. A mentorship program geared towards young girls ages 14-18.
This year our dinner is titled "Girl Effect: Voices of the Unheard." We will focus on those who are unheard and the people making initiatives to make a change. We are asking MPFRIAS to be our Keynote Speaker for this wonderful signature event! We feel that the power of your words on current controversial issues is unmatched. Hermanas of the Alpha Xi Chapter truly admire your work and believe you will make a huge impact in the Pace community.
