Community Spotlight: Construyendo Poder
Wendolyne Omaña of Construyendo Poder gives an overview of their organization, which strives to help Spanish-speaking people in the 4 Corners access wellness resources.
CPR/Construyendo Poder Retreats, was founded in 2018 in response to the acute trauma inflicted upon the monolingual Spanish speaking community by systems of oppression, and the subsequent need for trauma support for parents and children. The program began as a 100% grassroots effort, without any non-profit or agency involvement. It is purely a creation of the local Latinx Immigrant community.
They are currently seeking volunteers for childcare during events. You can contact them herewith your references, if interested.
