Latinas In Action
Women in underserved communities face struggles that men don’t. Moreover, Latinx women are much more likely to live in poverty than their counterparts. Many times they lack the education, experience, and skills – even the self-confidence – to pursue a gainful and stable income; thus, the Latina immigrant has the immense potential to improve her economic situation, as well as that of her family, and become an agent of change.
