On July 25, 1992, Afro-descendant women from 32 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean met to make the fight against racism visible. Since then, every July 25, the International Day of Afro-Latin, Afro-Caribbean and Diaspora Women is commemorated, a date that aims to make Afro-descendant women visible and promote public policies that help improve their quality of life and eradicate racism and discrimination.

In the 21st century, where there are multiple forms of discrimination against women and girls that are aggravated from an ethnic perspective, it is time to end racial violence and exclusion towards Afro-descendant women and combat intolerance and stereotypes.
