East Los Angeles Women's Center

Become an Embajadora de Paz

Every person is entitled to a peaceful, safe home and to be treated with honor, respect, and equality. Add your voice to our numbers.

Did you know interpersonal violence is the third leading cause of death among people 10-29 years? And that Latinas and African Americans make up 82 percent of women living with HIV/AIDS in the world?

Advocacy, education, and compassionate support are essential for women and girls who have encountered violence. You can be a part of the transformative work of the East Los Angeles Women’s Center by becoming an Embajadora de Paz, an Ambassador for Peace.
