By 2060, 1/3 of the female population in the United States will be Latina.
Today, one in four female students is Latina; yet, daunted by poverty, racism and access, one in five Latinas do not complete high school by age 29 and just 19% of Latina women have a college degree.
When women are empowered, whole communities prosper. If we want the world to be healthy and whole, we have to invest in Latina women. Yet, just one cent out of every dollar a foundation grants in North Carolina goes to Latino issues. If we are going to create positive change, it comes down to everyday people like you and me deciding that everyone deserves to be invested in.
