Mujeres de la Tierra

WHAT WE DO:

  • Inspire, Motivate and Engage women and their children to take ownership and leadership of their neighborhood and local community issues

HOW WE DO IT:

  • We help them identify holistic and sustainable solutions to environmental woes
  • We support and encourage the building of healthier and sustainable neighborhoods through public engagement and individual participation
  • We build an effective and powerful platform for them to speak up and speak out
  • We respect their role as decision-makers, leaders and healers of La Madre Tierra
  • We listen to community
  • We believe in the power of one

WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED:

  • Local residents, families and stakeholders are the in the best position to decide what is good for them, their children and their neighborhood.
  • Self-empowerment is the most effective tool to inspire leadership - individually and collectively
  • We cannot separate the “Green” conversation of conservation with the “Green” economic realities of everyday survival: the two go hand in hand.  MDLT is developing an economic empowerment platform to address those issues in a sustainable and strategic manner-La Paletera de Los Angeles-coming soon.
