The center has been a Godsend,in my life. this place has helped me snapped out of my depression. I have met many wonderfull women that have share their knowledge and stories with me. the excerise classes at the center have help me lose weight and become more healthy. I have learn to oil paint,descovering a talent that I did not know I had. All the staff at the cener are the freindlist most helpful people I have ever met..I it is a place where people like myself with low income can go and learn new things and meet all this wonderfull people. I could go on and on.

I just wish it had some sort of daycare so more women could come. I wish the center had more funds so the could add more classes on other things.

This organization serves two states New Mexico and Texas in Anthony. I refer several community members to the organization due to the amount of resources this organization has an out reach for. They also provide community awareness classes related to the community. Since Ms. Carter assumed the director position, I have seen this organization grow within the community. While the facility in located in Anthony, New Mexico the Anthony Texas Police Department works together for the good of the community. The education and awareness this program outputs is beneficial to those who are interested. A very well rounded organization.

The women's intercultural center is a place for women and men could go and learn something for good. I volunteer assisting a teacher that teaches the citizenship in spanish. The center wants the students to do something for themselves in this case get their citizenship. It gives them the resources and for them to ask questions with no discrimination and the experience of having a place to be and feel supported and valued.

I have loved the Women's Intercultural Center since before it even came into being. It's earliest beginnings included local women, and the women who found their way to the Center were part of every decision made! Although I am no longer at the border, I know that women's lives are still being enhanced by the classes, the people, and the experience of having a PLACE to be and feel supported and valued. The Center continues to be a place of learning and of laughter, song and dance. I hear from women who are and have been part of the Center, and students who participated in the Border Awareness Experience. It will always be part of so many lives!

on-going relationships with women I met and saw grow from women hesitant to speak up in a group to becoming part of the staff or go on to community college. I've seen them speak to groups who came to learn about the border. I've seen women who had never been in an art class or a sewing class produce creations that delighted themselves and others. I've seen women struggle to learn English- and succeed. Some of my favorite memories of the Center are the gatherings we had where each woman spoke,

not know what to suggest. Methods of communication have changed, and I feel out of touch with the daily functioning of the Center I'm sure it has changed and grown in ways I don't know. I know we always loved our celebrations at the Center, and hope those continue. I hope connections with past staff, participants, and supporters continue.

In January I brought 4 students from Siena College to participate in the Border Awareness Program. The program far exceeded my expectations. The groups that we met with and the sites that we toured really gave us a broad picture of the border issues and the complex geography between El Paso and Cuidad Juarez. Teresa Nevarez was an exceptional host and guide. I plan to take a group back there next year.

I was recently elected as the first Municipal Judge for the newly incorporated City of Anthony, New Mexico.

It was an honor to be allowed to speak to a group of young women ages 12 to 18 on the importance of exercising their right to vote. Also, on how to make informed decisions with
regard to the candidates.

It was very rewarding to engage in questions and answers with this group of young women and to see their self-confidience strenghten as they participated in the discussions.

Our community needs self-esteem and confidience building activities for all our citizens and the Center is there helping fulfill the need.

Centers like this one are so needed throughout this country and the world. It is Centers like this that are starting to bring the awareness to society in a way that says, "You cant sweep this under the rug anymore!"



I don't know of too many women that have not been through
some kind of Abuse from boyfriends and husbands.



I am a survivor of physical and mental abuse. When I was going through it there was no where to run, no one to help or talk to. It was believed back then that it was the woman's falt for not obeying. I had to go through it by myself.



It took a long time and a lot of work on myself before I could see it in a different way. That being, it was a very empowering experience and it is a big part of who I am today. A strong independent woman that has worked for many years to heal herself to the point where I see that life is about our choices. We all have a choice to stay or go. It is not easy, although the choice is there. We are creating our journey, our lives and our children's lives. Once we accept that, it is very empowering. At this point I thank my abusers for the lessons, the opportunity to grow.



The lesson being that I am worth more than that. I am worth being loved and by that I mean, being loved in a good way. I don't deserve anything less and I will not settle for anything less.



I am a woman and I love it. I am strong, gentle, nourishing, loving and I walk in beauty.



I thank the women of this center for your courage and your devotion.



Namaste

I worked alongside this Center and their Technology Director in taking photos and videos of events. The people are incredible and the people they serve brighten my day every time I think of them. This are women that come into the center to change their lives, but they don't know what their getting themselves into. They become a greater power for good, an incredible person that changes their community with the knowledge they gain at the Center. With a Center like this nothing gets in the way of these wonderful women. It kind of reminds me of Bubble Boy, when they first walk through those doors their stuck in a bubble unaware of their talents and what a huge impact they can make on the community, but then they come in and they tear apart that bubble and release their talents and release themselves upon the world. This Center, these women, and men that come to the center are our future and it is important to keep them around.

The Women's Intercultural Center is something I have never seen before, it's a very unique center and very important to the community. I learn that all of their programming is initially thought up off by the participants. They give the participants an opportunity to speak up and share what they think are the major issues affecting the community. The center in turns creates programming to fit their needs. I hope people will help this organization grow especially when funding is becoming a major issue in this economy.
