Lideres en Accion y Poder

Mujeres en Accion y Poder (MAP) is a project of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization in partnership with Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association. MAP is a Latina women's group that meets three times a week, and participants focus on building connections in the community, organizing social activities, sharing resources, and sharing skills. Leaders from Mujeres en Accion y Poder created a leadership training program for Latina women in the Corcoran and Powderhorn neighborhoods called Lideres en Accion y Poder (LAP) that developed their leadership and organizing skills to better engage in the life and leadership of their neighborhoods. The overall impact on the Corcoran and Powderhorn neighborhoods will be increased leadership and organizing capacity and more involvement in neighborhood activities, issues, and initiatives by the Latino community.
