For the past seven years, Afro-descendant women in Mexico have celebrated the International Day of Afro-descendant Women on July 25. These gatherings occur in regions inhabited by people of Black heritage, honoring both the International Decade for Afro-descendant Women and various civil organizations.

Yolanda Camacho and Rosa María Castro Salinas convened for the first meeting in Huatulco, Oaxaca, with the objective of breaking out of silence, invisibilization and confronting systemic and structural racism.
