Hundreds Attend 3rd Annual Mujeres Empowered for Success Latina Conference

About 600 guests attended on June 2 the 3rd Annual Mujeres Empowered for Success Latina Conference in Council District 9. 

The community event promotes the development, progress and success of Latinas in South Los Angeles. Over the course of the day, attendees were treated to motivational speakers, insightful discussions, live entertainment, a job and resource fair. 

"I hope the women who joined us found the conference to be enriching on a professional and personal level," said Councilman Curren Price, who hosted the event at Los Angeles Trade-Tech College. "My wish is that the ladies who did attend continue to learn, grow and go on to achieve their goals!"
