Founded in 1973, Mujeres Latinas en Accion's mission has been to empower Latinas through providing services which reflect their values and culture and by being an advocate on the issues that make a difference in their lives. Today, 45 years later, Mujeres remains a unique and vital resource--the longest-standing Latina-led organization in the country dedicated exclusively to Latinas, their families and their children.
Mujeres Latinas en Acción's long term goal is to support Latinas to live lives free of violence. Mujeres accomplishes this goal through five concurrent strategies: crisis intervention, parenting support, economic empowerment, leadership development and advocacy. These strategies are vital to meeting their basic needs while creating an environment in which every woman who walks out of Mujeres’ doors leaves with a sense of decency, dignity and self-worth that enable them to make a difference in their lives and become leaders in their communities.
We invite YOU to join our cause by donating today so that Mujeres can continue providing life-altering services to Latinas and their families. Funds raised through the Purple Purse Challenge will directly benefit Mujeres' programs which are designed to lead a client on the road to empowerment.
