We advance our mission with direct community involvement across three (6) program & initiative focus areas: Civic Engagement, Culturally Responsive Education, Health, Community Development, Economic Empowerment and Racial Justice.
Every program embeds skills development and technical training on power building, community organizing and civic engagement on issues of social justice.
Whether it is our Annual Fly Pinays, which takes place every March during Women’s Herstory Month, our activation work at Delano Manongs Park, or Awareness in Action Program (AAP) during the summer months, we are active throughout the year with various programs, events and workshops.
