Our Goals

Empowering Latinas By...

... 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.

Our History

Founded in 1974...

... as the first national Mexican-American Women's National Association, MANA, A National Latina Organization, is a 501(c)3 non-profit grassroots membership organization located in Washington DC . MANA's original intent was to provide a voice for Mexican-American women at the national, state and local levels. Since then, the organization has expanded into a diverse group of Latinas involved in political, social and professional fields across the United States. MANA, a leader in a movement committed to empowering Latina women, offers leadership development and mentor training to members of 24 local MANA chapters.
