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.

I visited the Women's Intercultural Center during a Globalization lunch for a Border Awareness Experience (BAE) university and guided the students through the Segundo Barrio (El Paso,Texas). The information shared between the students, Center staff and participants was very interesting because it would turn out to be a learning experience for all of us. I enjoyed taking part in one of the many programs that the Women's Intercultural Center offers.

The Great!

the BAE groups-the positive comments made by students regarding the hospitality and information provided during their visit.

invite and/or encourage not only universities, but local agencies/organizations to come and learn about the border.

The WInC is a geat place for women of the surrounding communities to come together and experience companionship, personal growth, strength, compassion, and knowledge. I have been a member since October 2010. I attend the exercise class only, but I have seen the fruits of many other women who attend a number of other classes, such as painting, sewing, and jewelry making. I am a native of Anthony, but I never really knew what a blessing I have in my own neighborhood. That blessing is the WInC! I have recently retired from a school district after 25 plus years of service. My intention is to continue learning about the center and of the many services it provides. I want to contribute in some way.

I have toured the facilities, met with the Director, and spent some time during the holiday season at WIC. The staff and volunteers are big hearted folks with a genuine desire to engage the community in activities that they are working on, specifically empowering women and providing resources in leadership along with their families. I have seen and experienced the greatness that this organization exudes in the community within individuals, families, and women.

This Center does incredible work in helping the community their known for covering all of Southern NM and West TX yet they only have 6 staff members. It's almost unbelievable how much work these people do, but I truly appreciate them for all they have to offer especially when it comes to empowering women. They never stop and that's why I will always support them. When times are tough and the economy started to impact them, they didn't turn away from their participants they were always there to educate and empower the community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how the Center can make a difference in a Woman's life. When I'm down and out and want to give up I look to the Center and realize I have the potential to do anything I want.
