Why I Support HOPE?

"I proudly support HOPE because I know that at the very core of the organization and at the heart of its leadership, is the shared commitment to elevate, educate, embolden and empower Latinas."

– Monica Gil

"I support HOPE because HOPE gives a voice to a population that is growing in numbers but still need to be a strong voice at decision making board rooms. HOPE provides the training and guidance and support for Latinas interested in taking on the leadership roles in government, business and education."

– Maria Cisneros 

"I support HOPE because every Latina deserves equal educational opportunities.”

– Roxana Garcia, YLTLP Graduate 2011 



“I have watched the growth of HOPE. I am impressed by their vision, their focused approach to strengthening leadership of Latinas to hold public office, lead boards and influence public policy.” – State Leader.


“[The Youth Leadership through Literacy Program] made me feel that I was helping my community and that I was doing great things for myself too. Professionally, it made me realize what I really wanted to be in the future and what I want as a career.” – Youth Program participant.


“The HOPE Leadership Institute has changed my life. It has given me a new way to look at the world, but more importantly, it has given me the opportunity to connect with other women where, together, we can impact the world. In a personal way, I have realized that the strength of HLI depends on what I make of it. HLI is more than just a program, it’s a living institute committed to improving equality one woman at a time. “– HLI Alumna.
