About #GivingTuesday

November 28 is Giving Tuesday, a day of giving created to inspire personal philanthropy and encourage bigger, better, and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season. Giving Tuesday is an international online movement that celebrates and encourages giving.

About #Give2Grow

National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH) uses  Giving Tuesday to launch our end of year fundraising campaign. This year we are thrilled to announce starting today and through the month of December, all gifts will be matched dollar for dollar. This means your impact will be doubled!

This year NLIRH set our tone based on the powerful words of Lucy Felix, Director of Texas Field and Advocacy ¡Aqui Se Respira Lucha! – Here Breathes the Fight. The attacks and fear mongering have not stopped our work. It’s made us bolder! The work and growth of our Latina Advocacy Networks (LANS) in New York, Florida, Texas, and Virginia wasn’t easy before the elections a year ago. That’s why in 2017, Latinx activists and leaders fought even harder to organize and mobilize our communities for justice. We breathe to celebrate the resiliency as much as the accomplishments of the past year and looking forward to growing  our leadership and advocacy into a force to be reckoned with in 2018. Our #Give2Grow hashtag is about growing our Latinx power, our activists, their leadership, and the movement so that we continue to be a force in the fight for salud, dignidad, y justicia for all!

Watch our amazing activists in action:
