Poder del Pueblo

At the Esperanza, we believe in intersections. We invite others to come into our spaces without shedding any of their identities. It is this intersectionality that allows us to approach issues of social justice and peace through multiple lenses. We also believe in thinking beyond ourselves to include issues affecting the earth and the generations that follow.

Our people power strives to Respect Each Other, Respect (Y)our History and Culture and to Respect our Mother Earth.
