Amplifying the Voices of the Latino community
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.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
At Escúchanos! we believe in living out our faith This means walking out Proverbs 31:8-9 "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy."
CORONAVIRUS (COVID - 19)
and Its impact on Latino Immigrants
The outbreak of Covid - 19 in the U.S. has had a devastating impact on the Latino immigrant community. As a part of the fabric of our country, Latino immigrants have worked tirelessly in service jobs and contributed greatly to helping our economy thrive. Now, due to Covid -19, many of them have been laid off or let go from their jobs in housekeeping, restaurants, construction and other service work. Most of them will never qualify for programs made available to others during these challenging times.
Here at ¡Escúchanos! we believe we are all called to serve the vulnerable and marginalized. Your contribution can be the difference between a warm meal and going hungry, that little extra to help pay the rent and homelessness. Your donation or purchase from our ¡Escúchanos! Collection can make the difference for someone in need. Will you consider donating today?
Escúchanos! is dedicated to making a positive impact by providing safe spaces to come together to support one another and heal in community. We are committed to empowering Latinos so that we may thrive and live full and healthy lives.
We believe that telling our stories is a powerful tool for amplifying our voices and speaking into the current narrative to offer a different one, than that being told.
One of the ways we do this is through Latinas Fenomenales. A soon to be released series of short videos showcasing Latina women who are advocating for and serving others in their every day lives.
END FAMILY SEPARATION
We believe that the zero-tolerance immigration policy adopted by the current administration, which has resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents is an inhumane, cruel and unnecessary violation of human rights!
As people of faith, our mission is to bring an end to policies that inflict such trauma, and pain on families already suffering the effects of violence and poverty from the countries they are fleeing.
Through partnering with organizations that are advocating for migrant families and supporting legislation to reunite families and close detention
centers we believe we can bring an end to this injustice.
Join us today in the fight to end family dentention!
