WHO WE ARE
Escúchanos! is an organization committed to amplifying the voices of the Latino community.
It is a space created for us, as Latino women and men, immigrant and natural born citizens, young and old, documented and undocumented, to tell our own stories.
We also seek to empower the Latino community by providing safe spaces to learn together, grow in awareness of the social, political, and religious issues, understand the problems our community faces to work toward solutions, provide support and assistance in tangible ways and lend our prophetic voice to the current moment.
Our mission is to support the Latino immigrant community in the Sacramento region with resources that will enable its members to live fully into health, justice and equity.
