40 Years/40 Stories

For 40 years ELAWC has served as a beacon of hope and light for thousands of women and girls in our communities. 

In honor of our amazing 40 year journey together, we are shining the light on 40 courageous and inspiring individuals whose lives have touched, or been touched, by East Los Angeles Women’s Center and bringing you their fascinating stories. In the fall we will publish a photographic profile of the 40 stories. Here are some of the women and men who have contributed to this project with photography and quotes defining their connection.
