We are a culturally-empowered women of color-led community based organization. We are grounded in our fierce love for our Latinx and indigenous communities of the Rogue Valley and we are re-imagining new solutions for our people, Madre Tierra and our future generations.

Our coalition seeks to weave a tapestry of many colors from many directions that will lift our peoples’ hearts up in this recovery, that will center healing, seed hope for our youth, and will give us the strength we need to prepare collectively for the climate challenges that are ahead of us.

Our Vision

To see our Latinx & Indigenous community of the Rogue Valley thrive. We work towards a future where the Latinx and Indigenous families in our community can actualize our collective power to shape our destiny and create our own solutions.

Our Strategy

Through advocacy, cultural organizing, and community education we are working towards neighborhood preservation and restoration, community leadership and economic development, creative placemaking and belonging, and community ownership and power

Our Four Pillars

Our Path to Liberation

For decades our communities have been the economic backbone of the largest economies in the Rogue Valley, yet we have been left out of socioeconomic, environmental and political decisions that impact our everyday lives. In the midst of a global pandemic, on September 8th of 2020 the Almeda Fire scorched over 2,600 homes displacing our historically low-income, Latinx and Indigenous neighborhoods and revealing just how climate vulnerable, economically exploited and politically underrepresented our communities have been. A month after the Almeda Fire we found ourselves in a High School gym at a Northwest Seasonal Workers Association (NSWA) membership meeting with many families who were growing frustrated with the lack of answers from landlords and government officials. We sat there brainstorming solutions to our collective nightmare and in the middle of our meeting, one of our community elders who is now an ancestor, Don Leonso Solis, stood up and asked, “why don’t we just buy our neighborhoods back?”

That day was significant because we all remembered that we have the knowledge and the skills to create our own solutions and that we have each other. We also took power into our own hands and led a community-driven participatory action research project to understand the extent of our loss and damage. It has been the findings and the personal stories of our communities’ grief and Spirit of perseverance that have shaped our vision, grounded our work, and our strategy.

We are driven by the hope that we have the power to create something better than what we lost.
