A Message from our Executive Director

January 2017

Dear CLF familia,
As many of you undoubtedly share our feelings of fear and anger after the outcome of our elections, we hope you also share our determination to stand together to resist and to defend our families and our communities.
Let us move forward to rejoice and celebrate each other's spirit. Let us not have our joy be taken away from us. Since November 8th, I have found strength in your words, in the reminders of our lineage of struggle, perseverance, resistance and victories. And nowhere have I found more hope and inspiration than from our very own CLF sister board members, the current scholarship awardees and our Alumnae.

One of the volunteers who participated in last year’s Scholarship Application Readings wrote:
Courage. Drive. Struggle. Intelligence. Hope. Vision. And so much hard work! These were my thoughts as I read the inspiring applications of young Chicana/Latina women for the latest round of CFL educational scholarships. Stunned by the caliber of their testimonials, experiences and insights, I realized what a difference the Foundation makes in the lives of these young women, and how great the need is. Support a young Chicana/Latina woman individually, and you'll change a life. Donate to the entire class of applicants and you'll be nurturing future champions for culturally sensitive schools, healthier communities, diverse companies and a legal system that protects all Californians. I've given modestly to the Chicana/Latina Foundation before. Next time I'll donate more, because of the difference I now know my support can make. Please join me - there’s never been a better time to be generous.
