How Movement Mujeres Is Looking To Elevate More Women Of Color To Leadership In Texas
‘So Davis' Deeds Not Words and Tzintzun's Jolt Initiative are teaming up to use their respective skill sets to invest in the next generation of leaders and "to give young women of color in Texas that opportunity that so many times has been afforded to other people, but not to them," Tzintzun says.’
Women made historic gains last year. This new leadership training initiative wants to keep that going.
Movement Mujeres, an initiative backed by former state senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, is a two-year leadership training program that organizers hope will prepare selected fellows to run for public office, work in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors or be community leaders.
Wendy Davis partners with group to put more women of color in politics, nonprofits
Tzintzún’s and Davis’ groups are now launching Movement Mujeres, a leadership development program for women of color funded by a four-year, $2 million grant from the NoVo Foundation. Central to the program is a fellowship designed to help 25 women ages 21-35 hone their skills, build an alumni network and take on key leadership positions in government and social justice nonprofits in Texas.
