Dear LLNCCC Hermanas/Sisters,
How our lives have changed in the last 9 months seems almost unimaginable. During these challenging times, Hermanas/Sisters across the state are rising to the occasion — from serving as health care providers on the front lines to helping others who need groceries or meals delivered to picking up the phone to check on friends. LLNCCC Hermanas/Sisters who have lost touch have been compelled to reach out and reconnect. Now more than ever, we need one another. And, we need you. First and foremost, I hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and well.
If you are in a position to help, please consider making a special gift today. Your donation funds our student scholarships, Madrina awards, resources, and other services that help empower Latinas through learning and leadership! Over the course of the last few months, LLNCCC has reflected on the path forward. We are beginning with focusing on enhancing our organizational; structure to better support the needs of our members, students, and professionals. The current need within our LLNCCC community is very real and we are exploring different ways of providing support during this difficult time.
- If you are currently a California Community College student, please apply to our LLNCCC 2021 scholarship. The Latina Leadership Network of the California Community Colleges will be awarding two students from each Regional Area (North, Central and South), a total of six (6) student scholarships of $500 to students currently attending a California Community College. The deadline to apply for the LLNCCC scholarship is Friday, March 25, 2021. Apply today!
Throughout this crisis, our work continues on behalf of all of our programs. I can’t think of a greater time than now when our vision rings true: Imagine a world where all mujeres/women can achieve their potential and meet the ever-evolving challenges of our communities.
My heart and thoughts are with all of you.
Carla Molina, M.A. Ed.
President, Latina Leadership Network of the California Community Colleges
