Event description

Description

Cabo Verdean communities have existed in the United States since the early 1800s, with the largest concentration located in the New England area and other considerable developing communities in states like New York, New Jersey, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and California. Cabo Verdean women in particular have been at the forefront of building their communities as mothers, wives, professionals and leaders. It is important to have a formal platform where we discuss subjects that are specific to the Cabo Verdean woman. Although conferences are held in the Cabo Verdean community in the United States, the level of discourse on topics specific to women and gender relations remain limited. In 2016, the first historic Poderoza Conference took place at Providence College with an audience of over 250 participants, including members of as well as allies and advocates of the Cabo Verdean community from across the United States, Canada, Europe and Cabo Verde. The conference addresses the need for focused discourse on issues of importance to women and offers a safe space for Cabo Verdean women’s voices to be heard. Panels celebrate their accomplishments and address the unique set of challenges they face in the areas of immigration status, self-image, health (physical and mental), education, domestic violence, community building, activism and beyond. This is an important opportunity to REBRAND the Cabo Verdean woman and the way she has been portrayed beyond her physical attributes, empowering her to RECLAIM her identity and agency as an intelligent, powerful person who makes strategic choices about her life and family—not as a victim of her circumstances but as a self-determined being. Our vision is to create a network of individuals who will empower and actively support Cabo Verdean women, particularly young women and girls, in seeing themselves as capable of achieving all of their hopes and dreams.
