The Black, Afro-Colombian, Raizales and Palenqueras Affairs Department joins the celebration of the International Day of Afro-Latin women, Afro-Caribbean and Diaspora Women, instituted in the First Meeting of Afro-Latin and Afro-Caribbean Women held in 1992.

This date highlights the constant efforts of gender for inclusion, justice and equality for Afro-descendant women in Latin America. Likewise, it allows ratifying the struggle for the demand and the visibility of the Afro woman.

The director of Black Communities Affairs, Libardo Asprilla Lara, sent a message to all Afro-descendant women to continue to lead actions to eradicate racism, sexism, discrimination and prejudice, to achieve Afro recognition.
