Adelante Mujeres provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to Latina women and families to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2019, our country deported and imprisoned more than 500,000 immigrant men, women and children. Yet, according to the USDA, more than half of the food we eat every day is farmed by undocumented immigrants. They are our essential workers. Despite this fact, undocumented families are forced to live in fear. Adelante Mujeres means Women Rise Up and we are a grassroots organization run by and for the Latinx community. We partner with more than 9,000 people per year, building Latina leadership through creative, innovative programming in Education, Entrepreneurship and Empowerment. The women in our programs are working hard to become civic leaders, immigrant rights activists, youth leaders, entrepreneurs, sustainable farmers and much more. You can help them do even more in 2021.
