I want all Latina women and girls to feel deeply supported so that they can bring their visions to life and transform the systems and communities around us. That's why I started LPC so no Latina woman or girl is left behind and has a support group.


Our vision, our strategy & pretty much everything!

After graduation, I moved back home to Washington but my heart is with the women of LPC. I try to work fast and reply to your emails and connect you to the right people.
