The Latina Civic Foundation is a 501c3 non-partisan educational committee whose mission is to build a network of civic engagement that expands Latina women’s capacity to develop their leadership potential and impact policy change via civic engagement in their local communities. By training women with the skills needed to run for office, manage and run electoral and issue-based campaigns, and build a base of strong community leadership, we hope to lay the foundation for future change makers. The Foundation will also support initiatives that inform the public on critical issues that matter to Latinas in New Jersey.
Latina Civic Foundation’s organizational growth is happening at a time of flux and change in our country. More than ever, education and civic engagement for young women is critical in building strong leaders that can advance quality of life issues for New Jersey diverse communities.
With more than a decade of experience, Latina Civic Foundation is ready to move to the next chapter of its work and reach more Latinas to help them realize their potential as local and state leaders.
