Our leadership development model has caught the attention of many women in the area and has positively impacted the lives of many who are now stepping into their own leadership roles. In realizing that they have a support system, one that was nonexistent for them before, and knowing we offer them an unbiased safe space to come together as a community regardless of race, ethnicity or religion, we have become a trusted organization and voice in and for the community.
The training’s bring women together using education and other community organizing techniques to strengthen self-esteem leading to enhanced communities in which immigrant women are active, informed participants in local efforts to improve their quality of life and ensure protection of human rights. The program consists of 4 5-hour training days. Topics include legislative process in the United States, US immigration history, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, etc. SEPA Mujer leaders seek skills-based training’s that include how to organize and facilitate community meetings, document human rights abuses at the workplace or within the family, navigate educational opportunities and justice systems on Long Island. These skills are essential not only in the course of their community organizing initiatives, but for the day-to-day needs of the individual members and their families.
