Chicas Latinas, 2015 Year in Review! 

Real-talk: I made the decision to turn my, then 3 year old, community organization into a nonprofit in 2012 because it was TOO big for me. I needed a board, I needed funds, I needed help… I needed the community. Our membership was larger than I could handle, the volunteer requests were coming from every direction, and the demand for Latina leaders in the community was far too great to fulfill on my own. At the time, both personal and Chicas resources were depleted – but I pushed through with the belief that the/our community would support what it wanted, needed, and was asking for. I needed the community, because it was clear that the community needed us. I’ve always had issues “asking,” but today I’m asking… not for me, not even for Chicas Latinas, but for what we represent in our community. A shift in Latin@ culture and identity in Sacramento. A culture, and future, of volunteerism, civic engagement, and Latina leadership.

Please consider donating this #GivingTuesday (and beyond) to help us reach our goal! Learn more about our GoFundMe campaign:
