Who We Are

Vision & Values

 

Our Vision 

We envision a society where Latinas/xs are thriving and free to activate our power to make decisions about our bodies, sexuality, and families.  

Core Values 

We strive for Latinas/xs to live with dignity about our sexualities and genders. Driven by a reproductive justice framework, we build power in Latina/x communities to exercise autonomy over our bodies and secure equal access to reproductive health as a human right. 

The Latina Institute’s Strategic Framework 

We create transformational spaces in our communities that deepen awareness to change hearts and minds. We believe those most impacted are the agents of change, so we invest in grassroots Latina/x leaders to serve as the best advocates for our communities. We develop and elevate the thought leadership of Latinas/xs. We foster inclusive spaces to reach the diversity of the Latina/x community that accounts for the differences in our race and culture, linguistic abilities, gender identity, sexuality, and worldviews. We work to ensure the Latina/x community is represented in spaces that traditionally ignore our lived experiences. We are committed to building community power to advance a national activist and community-centered reproductive justice movement.
