The mission of MANA de San Diego is to transform communities through empowering Latinas to achieve upward mobility and a better quality of life.
In 1986, five insightful local Latinas recognized the significant need for a unifying force – a strong Latina voice advocating for a greater Latina presence and a deeper Latina involvement in the educational, economic, political and social arenas.
These pioneering and resourceful women created that unifying force and voice by establishing the San Diego Chapter of MANA, a national Latina organization whose mission is to empower Latinas through education, leadership development, advocacy and community service.
MANA short for “Hermana”, the Spanish word for sister, is a dynamic sisterhood of Latinas bound together by common history, culture, language and goals.
MANA de San Diego is a 501 © (3) non-profit organization, incorporated in the State of California in 1998. MANA is funded by membership dues, donations and the generous support of sponsors and partners. MANA de San Diego is the largest and most active MANA chapter, with more than 4,000 supporters.
