The Latina Safehouse Initiative is proud to announce the Latinas Honoring Latinas 2005 event to honor Josefina Lopez, author of Real Women Have Curves. Award winning actress, screenwriter, filmmaker, playwright, activist and poet, Josefina Lopez has devoted her life to empowering women. She co-wrote the screenplay for the critically-acclaimed film Real Women Have Curves, based on her play, which won the Audience Award and a Special Jury Award for Acting at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. One of the country's preeminent Latina artists, she also teaches playwriting and screenwriting to local youth and Latino adults. The event will also honor local survivors of violence.

Tickets are $50.00 per person and include entrance to the Botanic Gardens for the day, buffet, and beverage. There will be a cash bar and opportunities to win fabulous prizes. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Latina Safehouse Initiative.
