Last month, Esperanza staff embarked in a mother’s day mini-fundraiser and community-building event Color Your Love for your Mother at the Mercado La Paloma. It was fairly simple to connect the event to our vision and reality. A great majority of Esperanza staff are Promotoras from the community who themselves are mothers, and many members of the community are also mothers of young children actively engaged in schools, park committees, and tenant leadership councils to improve the conditions of their lives and that of their children.
