Mujeres de Conciencia/
Women of Conscience

A Book Project 

This is a book endeavor to profile for the general public; young and old, Latinas of California whose knowledge and efforts have affected the well being of the Latino communities.  The women presented in the book are representatives of the other hundreds of  thousands  of  Latin Americans who are also engaged in similar important works.  

I realize that this is only the beginning. Others will come and take this journey further, and give voice to the vast depository of Latinas fighting for justice for us all.
