"Preservation of one's culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures." - Cesar Chavez
To create and foster a dialogue between the Hispanic/Latino and LGBTQ Community which have a common goal; full equality!
Who we are:
We are a community action group that works on service projects, raises funds for scholarships and school supplies, participates in annual events like Lifewalk (to raise awareness and funds to combat HIV/AIDS) and Cena en el Barrio (to help feed low-income families during the holidays), and helps to provide resources to the community. We are an all-volunteer organization. Our organization does not have a lawyer to help you with legal matters. We encourage you visit our friends at Legal Aid of Nortwest Texas, located at 1515 Main St., Dallas, TX 75201, where legal aid and advice can be provided to you. You can reach them at 214.748.1234 and at www.lanwt.org.
