EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
Hello friends! I am honored to serve on the board of directors of Mujeres Latinas en Accion. Mujeres provides culturally-relevant services to Latinas and their families who have been victims of domestic violence. They have a fabulous program that helps victims of domestic violence who have escaped their abusers start their lives over again as entrepreneurs. I have seen this program in action and it's an amazingly empowering experience for these women!
Your donation will benefit the brave women who benefit from this program. We are participating in a challenge grant to fund the wonderful work of Mujeres. Please join me in supporting Mujeres Latinas en Accion with whatever donation amount you are able to offer. We appreciate your consideration and your support!
Thank you for your support! Read more about Mujeres below.
The goal of this campaign is to continue providing life-saving services to victims of domestic violence. Your donation will directly benefit Empresarias del Futuro/Entrepreneurs of the Future. This innovative program teams with community partners to provide a pathway to economic security to survivors of DV. During this 15-week program, women learn leadership skills, financial education, and small business development with a focus on microenterprise. While many are learning how to start a business, many participants already have one and are learning to expand from planning, to funding, to execution. With the needs of the Latino community at the forefront, classes are offered in Spanish and provide child care onsite. The curriculum has been specially developed for maximum impact among the community we serve.
