2014 National Latina Institute Proposal Accepted

W.O.M.A.N., Inc. is proud to announce that our proposal to present a workshop about our Echando Pa’lante program has been accepted for the 2014 National Latina Institute “Vida plena para todas” in Chicago, IL.  

The National Latina Institute will bring together about 150 participants from a variety of fields including advocates, community leaders, activists, researchers and others. This institute will provide attendees with significant opportunities for networking, resource and expertise sharing and critical discussions on traditionally challenging topics. 

The conference will take place June 9-11th and W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s Executive Director and staff from our Latina Program will attend the conference and facilitate one of the fourteen workshops to occur this year.

The National Latina Network for Healthy Families and Communities is a network of individuals and organizations committed to improving the health and well-being of Latina communities. The National Latina Network is led by Casa de Esperanza, a national Latina organization whose mission is to mobilize Latinas and Latino communities to end domestic violence. The National Latina Network for Healthy Families and Communities builds on Casa de Esperanza’s experiences working in local communities to support families, end domestic violence, and increase meaningful access to services for Latinas and incorporate a research center, public policy initiative, and training.
