Building Inspiring Spaces

Sisters of Color United for Education (SOCUE) is a grassroots organization founded in 1989 by Professor Belinda Garcia and over the last twenty-seven years the organization has evolved to include men, LGBTQ, youth and elders, from multiple cultural backgrounds. Utilizing a human liberation and social justice framework, Promotoras have evolved from providing educational trainings and basic needs to building capacity of leaders to address economic, cultural, political and social barriers. This unique framework includes intersectionality of economics, race, class, and gender as attributing factors to the disproportionately high incidence of chronic illness and disease in people of color communities.

Remembering that community health is adaptive, we organically created innovative opportunities to create solutions. Communities who access SOCUE’s services face a number of barriers at multiple levels that cannot be treated through isolated or static interventions, or a one size fits all model. Our holistic training model includes taking into consideration sexual identity, immigration status, economic, language and cultural barriers that have often

been overlooked in mainstream organizations leading to poorer health outcomes in disenfranchised communities. Socioeconomic status has a marked influence on health, and race/ethnicity and income are inextricably intertwined (Institute of Medicine, 2012).

Promotoras

The Promotoras program has been created by passionate, motivated human beings that all have something in common. They are heart centered, believe that there should be equity and justice for all people, and they are inspired to promote change from the out side in and from the inside out. SOCUE represents the people in our communities, we work towards the health in the community, and we do so by trying “to be the change we want to see in the world” as well as engaging with the systems who want to impose there change on us.

Promotoras Program ha sido creada por gente motivada y apasionada que tienen algo en común.
