By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belmopan Mayor Sheran Palacio has been invited to visit Georgia State Capitol and Senate Chambers by Georgia Senator Dr. Donzella James.
Palacio will visit Atlanta, Georgia, from August 6-8, 2021, to attend the Diaspora summit of the African Women in Leadership Organization (AWLO)
Senator James wrote Mayor Palacio on June 12 welcoming her and her delegates to Atlanta.
“While you are visiting the United States of America, I extend an invitation for you and your delegates to visit the State Capitol and Senate Chambers. My colleagues and I are honored to host your visit,” said James who is a Patron of AWLO USA and is the Chief Host and Chairperson of the global event.
“This prestigious event will be an exciting time as women of leadership from around the world come together to bridge the gap of many diverse issues,” wrote James who closed saying she looked forward to seeing Mayor Palacio at the conference.
Palacio, who was elected Mayor of Belmopan in early March, and who has been Director of Women Affairs at the University of Belize is an activist very much involved in women’s affairs, particularly women of African descent.
“Africanism encompasses the world,” Palacio said on a one-on-one conversation with Breaking Belize News upon taking office. “The one thing I stand for is unity in diversity whereby we all become world citizens, everybody.”
In 2020, she was nominated fоr аn іntеrnаtіоnаl humаnіtаrіаn аwаrd fоr unѕung hеrоеѕ by Vіgоr Unѕung Неrоеѕ Аwаrdѕ Іntеrnаtіоnаl (VUНА) for promoting Africanism by organizing Africa Day on May 25, 2020. That was the first time Africa Day was observed in Belize.
