Adelante mujeres logoTonight's nonprofit partner is ADELANTE MUJERES, which provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to marginalized Latina women and families to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community.

"At Adelante Mujeres we recognize that despite the fact that more than 18% of the US population is Latino, they are underrepresented in decision making roles in our society. Latina voices are particularly missing from discussions that guide policies and legislature that directly impacts their lives. We want to change that. Latina women have the capacity to lead and we are working to empower the women and girls in our programs to do just that.

More than 80% of Adelante Mujeres staff identify as Latina and share similar lived experiences as our participants. In fact, some of our staff were once participants in our programs. This ensures that our work maintains it's relevance and deep roots within the community we serve."
