Historia


The Guerreras Latinas program founded in 2015 by a Latina woman at the Rosewood Initiative became an independent non profit organization with the same name in Dec-2020. Founded and led by community leader, activist, and advocate Yoana Molina Marcial, Guerreras Latinas has been organizing Latinx women in the neighborhood for over eight years. They have grown to a group of over 800 women who learn from and support each other. As they grow their impact, they are making transformational changes to the conditions in the community that make it possible for everyone to thrive. Guerreras Latinas offers these women a safe space to connect, access resources, services and opportunities to empower themselves through information, thus strengthening their leadership in order to advocate for the well-being of their families and communities. The organization aims to remove barriers to education and resources by offering classes, workshops, and presentations and by providing child care, hot meals, and transportation costs to and from events. 

Grupo de Empoderamiento

Guerreras Latinas is an empowerment group directed at Spanish speaking Latinas who want to grow and build healthy relationships with their partners and children while increasing awareness of community resources. Helping participants to become more self-reliant and confident in conducting the affairs of their daily lives. By providing a safe social setting to practice, live and share their culture, improve self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and form connections within their community.

El grupo de apoyo Guerreras Latinas, empodera a las Latinas en la comunidad para construir relaciones saludables con sus parejas, hijos/as y la comunidad. A través de la mentoría, abogacía accesible a la violencia doméstica y agresión sexual y talleres. Las Guerreras Latinas se conectarán entre sí para desarrollar sus fortalezas, aumentando la autoconciencia y la conciencia comunitaria. Esto se logrará haciendo que los recursos de Guerreras Latinas (la organización) sean accesibles para Guerreras Latinas (el grupo de apoyo), así como los recursos dentro del grupo y del área metropolitana de Portland y sus alrededores. Logramos esto creando, equipando y manteniendo una red de Latinas en el vecindario enfocada en la tutoría entre pares. Guerreras Latinas fomenta un sentido de pertenencia, promueve la resiliencia, el liderazgo y las habilidades de abogacía para que las Latinas traiga prosperidad a sus familias y comunidades.
