Women’s Program, Entre Nosotras (Between Ourselves in English)
This program aims to meet the needs of Hispanic immigrant women by helping immigrant women help themselves. The program is focused on community outreach with the goal of organizing women to push for their rights. The women’s group meets regularly, usually on a Saturday.
The program fills a critical need for this immigrant women, who typically work in low-wage jobs such as in factories, in restaurants, as house cleaners, and earning only $5 to $8 an hour. They often battle traumatic memories of war and/or domestic violence and have limited education. Many are undocumented, single mothers.
Entre Nosotras Latinas is run by volunteers. Events have included celebrations of International Day of the Woman, a workshop on self-esteem, social trips and presentations focusing on women’s health.
CEUS demonstrates its commitment to Hispanic women by leading by example: Six of the nine members of the CEUS board of directors are women, including the president and secretary, as are the group’s four employees.
