All proceeds will be donated to Adelante Mujeres. Adelante Mujeres means women rise up and we are working to build a more just society by empowering Latinas to lead. We partner with more than 8,000 people annually through programs that provide education, enterprise and leadership opportunities.   Our Chicas Youth Development Program partners with local public schools and more than 600 girls in grades 3-12 each year to offer after school programming that instills confidence, provides academic support and much more. 100% of seniors graduate from high school and 96% enroll in college through this program.   We are at a pivotal time in history. Latina women face daunting challenges. At Adelante Mujeres, we are building leaders who have healed from past trauma and learned to believe in themselves. Leaders who understand that an “us versus them” mentality will not help heal divides. Leaders who understand how interdependent we are. Leaders willing to engage in the important work of healing and deep listening in order to build peaceful communities.   Right now, in Oregon, there are more Latina women than ever before rising to this occasion, wanting to be leaders, and they are looking to Adelante Mujeres to help them do it.  But we can’t meet this growing need without your help. The average cost for one person to join our programs for one month is $100.    Join us as we fight economic disparity with education and enterprise; as we fight injustice by building leaders; and as we fight hate with healing. With your help, we can build a community where everyone thrives.
