It has been two years since our last LOLA Training took place in Washington DC. We took the two years to focus on our current groups and build with them, before reaching out to new cities and activists. Now we are pleased to announce that we’re starting our next phase of LOLA Reproductive Justice Institutes!
Our first LOLA Reproductive Justice Institute of 2010 will take place in Milwaukee this September.
Our LOLA RJ Institutes seek to build a group of Latina leaders, strengthen the voices of Latinas and enable them to be seen as a powerful group who can influence policy decisions that directly impact our lives, our families and our communities.
Our co-sponsors for this Spanish language LOLA RJ Institute are Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Proyecto Salud, a joint project of CORE-El Centro and Aurora Walker’s Point Community Clinic that has been working in the Latino community since 2006. Proyecto Salud’s mission is to create new avenues for social change and foster a community that embraces spiritual, mental and physical health. They work with an ecological approach to public health and their philosophy is one of collaboration and civic capacity building.
We are thrilled about working with the Latina immigrant community in Milwaukee and we anticipate nothing but success come September, when we return to Milwaukee to facilitate our LOLA RJ Institute. New beginnings always offer new opportunities and we are happy that we have found new connections with strong energized Latinas in Milwaukee.
