Our Community Mobilization Program is centered around our Latinas Organizing for Leadership and Advocacy (LOLA) Training Series, our Latina Advocacy Networks (LANs), our National Advocacy Weekend, and our partnerships. Our bilingual (English & Spanish) LOLA trainings seek to build a group of Latina leaders, strengthen the voices of Latinas and enable them to be seen as a powerful group who can influence policy decisions that directly impact our lives, our families and our communities. Graduates of the LOLA trainings often go on to establish Latina Advocacy Networks in their communities.

Policy and Advocacy
NLIRH’s Policy and Advocacy Program works to advance the reproductive health and rights of Latinas around the country. Our policy agenda reflects the voice of the Latino community, and is garnered from the realities and concerns of our activists on the ground through the work of our Community Mobilization department. At NLIRH, we strongly believe that our policy work must be informed by the needs of our community; our policy agenda and recommendations reflect this.

NLIRH strongly believes that a reproductive justice platform must be informed by the experiences of women at the grassroots level. Therefore, we engage and educate Latino communities through community based participatory action research and training. Our CBPR and other Latina-led research on the reproductive health of Latinas directly shapes and advances reproductive justice policy advocacy and connects grassroots activists with effective tools for movement and leadership building.
