El/La Para TransLatinasPride Freedom AwardSelected by SF Pride Board of Directors
Pride Freedom Award
For outstanding contributions to advancing civil rights and freedom for LGBTQ people.The mission and vision of El/La Para TransLatinas is “to work to build a world where translatinas (transgender Latinas) feel they deserve to protect, love, and develop themselves. We support each other in protecting ourselves against violence, abuse, and illness. El/La works to build collective vision, action, and power to promote our survival and improve our quality of life in the SF Bay Area and beyond. Because we exist in a world that fears and hates transgender people, women, and immigrants, we fight for justice.” We are working within a culturally competent holistic model on behalf of translatinas in the fight for human rights, dignity, and freedom to live without personal and institutional discrimination and violence. El/La has been serving transgender Latinas since 2006.
