Mi Gente's "Brown Babes" events hold space for folks of color to come together in a more intimate environment to foster connection and collaboration. These events often center around sharing a meal together followed by a social hour with networking activities to encourage conversation.

Our first Brown Babes event was our Brunch hosted at 11th Hour Coffee. This event was meant to set the foundation of how our socials would connect and inspire collaboration between our guests.
Our "Hella Grateful" event was a lunch hosted at Pono Hawaiian Grill. This event was focused on reflection and gratitude as we ended 2022 and began the transition into 2023.
Our Rancho Retreat was held at Horse & Heart Ranch, where our founder Isabel Contreras volunteers in her free time. This venue played an essential role in providing an environment for our attendees to slow down their lives and focus on being present with one another in a natural setting.

This Brown Babes Brunch was a special one. We had our first special guest, Dr. Terence Lester join us to speak about the work he is doing in Atlanta, GA through his non-profit Love Beyond Walls. He shared his message of what it means to FULLY see one another and TRULY show solidarity for fellow community members.
