Message from the President, Meiling Macias-Toro
Welcome to our website!
Due the Global Coronavirus pandemic our annual 2020 Latina Leadership Forum (LLF) and Scholarship Award Luncheon for April 17th has been post-poned until further notice. This annual event is when the Westchester Chapter of 100 Hispanic Women award four outstanding High School seniors with scholarships to assist them with college expenses.
The Westchester Chapter of 100 Hispanic Women would like to congratulate this years’ scholarship winners: Annastassya Segovia, Noemi Pedraza, Sierra Mena Nova and Yamil Baez Galvez.
We are grateful to this years panel of dynamic speakers: Corazon Aquino – Yonkers City Council, 2nd District Majority Leader, Kisha SKipper- League of Women Voters of Yonkers and Ariana Quiñones – YWCA WP & Central Westchester and our moderator, Advisor Member Dr. Nereida Quiles-Wasserman. Our plan is to commemorate Women’s Suffrage with a panel discussion about the subject. We are looking for ways to continue to provide this panel discussion either virtually or once things get back to normal in a future date.
We pray for our board members and members who are mourning due to loss of loved ones and/or have family who are sick due to this pandemic. We are deeply saddened and express our heartfelt condolences.
For your safety, please follow all NY State Government and Department of Health guidelines. We urge you to stay home, stay safe and stay healthy!
