Welcome to Girasoles En Marcha
Everyday is a good day to plant! Our stories need to be told and shared, to remind us of what we are responsible to build and also preserve.
We believe that teaching cultural competence holistically to our youth through music, arts, and experiences, will strenghthen their ganas to build a better future.
G.E.M is a Non-Profit Organization. We believe in the power of heart collective work. We not only want to learn from the past, but validate our place not only in America, but in the world. Together we can bring light to change-makers, while preserving the beauty of all our cultures to build community.
"One in five women in the U.S. is a Latina. One in four female students in public schools across the nation is Latina. It is projected that by 2060, Latinas will form nearly a third of the female population of the nation. Thus, the future of our nation is very much tied to the future of Latinas."
--The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics --
To Inspire a positive Identity for young latinas through the preservation of their cultural heritage, to build self-esteem and explore the various paths of leadership.
MY WISH IS FOR GIRASOLES EN MARCHA TO BE THE BRIDGE WHERE WE CAN MERGE OUR AMERICAN CULTURE AND OUR LATINO ROOTS TO BUILD A NEW NARRATIVE THAT GIVES VALUE TO OUR IDENTITy.
