Today is Latina Equal Pay Day. “I am proud to contribute to the development and well-being of Hispanic Women as Vice-Chair of the board of directors of Dress for Success in Central New Jersey. DFSCNJ has impacted thousands of women’s lives through their many programs one of which is the “Latina Empowerment Program." This year alone, the organization served over 200 Latina women and youth. The program addresses the challenges that impede the Latina community’s acquisition of the skills and knowledge that can lead to a fuller participation in the job market and in community life. It’s bilingual approach will break the language barriers that this underserved community encounters and open powerful avenues of self-improvement and language acquisition. I am thankful for the opportunity DFS and Melissa Tenzer our (CEO) provide me to serve my community.
The more we can empower and educate our Hispanic Communities, the more Latinos will continue driving Prosperity, Power and Progress.”
