What is Escúchanos!?
Escúchanos! is an organization committed to amplifying the voices of the Latino Community. It is a space created to listen to the stories of Latino women and men, immigrant and natural-born citizens, young and old, documented and undocumented.
In these difficult times we seek to empower the Latino community by providing safe spaces to learn together, grow in awareness of the social, political, and religious issues, understand the problems our community faces to work toward solutions, provide support and assistance in tangible ways, and lend our prophetic voice to the current moment.
One of our current projects is Latinas Fenomenales. A series of short videos showcasing Latina women who are advocating and serving others in their every day lives.
