... a chapter of MANA, A National Latina Organization. We are an all-volunteer driven 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to creating a community of informed and active Latinas working together to support the success of all Latinos. MANA de Albuquerque’s mission is
“…to empower Latinas through leadership development, community service, and advocacy.”
... developing and delivering local programs and services, and by advocating (in partnership with MANA National and the other 23 MANA Chapters) on local, state and national issues.
Founded in 1985, MANA de Albuquerque members have generously contributed their time and skills providing services and advocating on behalf of Latinos. Many Hermanitas, mentored by MANA members, have graduated, completed college and moved on to successful careers. Some have returned to MANA de Albuquerque where, as members, they are now giving back.
Develop our own leadership skills by doing the “work” that will transform MANA de Albuquerque into a recognized and respected advocacy organization.
