Proyecto de Jóvenes Mujeres Centroamericanas

Estamos recaudando fondos para la realización del Proyecto de las Mujeres Jóvenes Centroamericanas​.

Homies Unidos, Inc.

Homies Unidos está agradecido y orgulloso de ser parte de los logros de nuestra comunidad, hemos hecho tanto con su apoyo el cual ha sido vital, fundamental, sin el cual el Concilio de la Juventud Centroamericana no estaría ahí. A pesar de que se estamos logrando momento en  algunas comunidades de Los Ángeles, todavía hay una necesidad fuerte para potenciar a las mujeres indígenas jóvenes en el Surcentro, Westlake y Pico-Unión.

Las Mujeres Jóvenes Centroamericanas están ahí, demandando sustento real y más humano, donde es necesario un espacio específico que se mantenga con/para/por ellas, donde florezcan todas sus capacidades, habilidades y así lograr sus mil veces sueños rotos debido a la violencia no contabilizada, abuso, que les ha impedido tener un sentido de identidad y construir juntas el necesario poder popular, para redefinir un camino claro hacia la recuperación, igualdad y unidad en cuanto así mismas, sus familias y comunidades. Con frecuencia indicamos la epifanía de los menores no acompañados, hemos dedicado recursos considerables y nuestros corazones para apoyar su causa de sobrevivir, progresar y tener un futuro mejor. Sin embargo, es un camino con sin fin de problemas, donde nos hemos dado cuenta que estamos poco a poco avanzando como comunidad mediante la creación de servicios sociales centralizadas para los niños, pero no es específico para las chicas jóvenes, lo que elevaría su conciencia contra los prejuicios de género, raza, identidad y cultura.

El Proyecto de Jóvenes Mujeres Centroamericanas delinearía el camino de la auto-conciencia, identidad cultural y orígenes, cómo prevenir la violencia y el abuso sexual, el embarazo adolescente, la falta de empleo, el desarrollo profesional y muchos otros temas que finalmente descansar en las manos y brazos de las futuras mujeres de nuestras comunidades, las mujeres son esenciales y el alma de las fortalezas y debilidades de nuestras comunidades. Las mujeres jóvenes de hoy y las futuras mujeres del mañana tienen que tienen un espacio específico para pavimentar la recuperación de la comunidad, la curación y auto-reconocimiento de su potencial, con los incuestionables dones y contribuciones de las mujeres jóvenes. Ellas recorrerán por el currículo de Xinachtli para las jóvenes indígenas, el Programa de Liderazgo de Jóvenes y la II Conferencia de Liderazgo Juvenil Centroamericano, para finalmente consolidar el Consejo de la Juventud Centroamericana en conjunto con los jóvenes.

¿Por qué es importante?

El Proyecto de Jóvenes Mujeres Centroamericanas asegurara que las jóvenes tehgan una exitosa, saludable, segura y bien apoyada integración en nuestras comunidades. El proyecto delinearía el camino de la auto-conciencia, identidad cultural y orígenes, cómo prevenir la violencia y el abuso sexual, el embarazo adolescente, la falta de empleo, el desarrollo profesional y muchos otros temas que finalmente descansar en las manos y brazos de las futuras mujeres de nuestras comunidades, las mujeres son esenciales y el alma de las fortalezas y debilidades de nuestras comunidades. Las mujeres jóvenes de hoy y las futuras mujeres del mañana tienen que tienen un espacio específico para pavimentar la recuperación de la comunidad, la curación y auto-reconocimiento de su potencial, con los incuestionables dones y contribuciones de las mujeres jóvenes.

¿Cómo se van a utilizar los fondos?

Homies Unidos ya está haciendo el trabajo con 7 jovencitas, de 30 participantes en dos secundarias o preparatorias, que este año hemos mejorado en comparación sólo una del año pasado. Aún así ellas están incluidas dentro del plan de estudios del Joven Noble que es sobre todo para los jóvenes. Independientemente que logremos o no el objetivo en su totalidad, los fondos serán destinados a la inversión humana, con el objetivo de compensar con estipendios algunas de las mujeres jóvenes más comprometidos y acompañadas por el personal de Homies Unidos. Tendrán que volver a evaluar las necesidades, readaptar el plan de estudios, construir un plan de trabajo adecuado y ejecutar el proyecto a partir de este verano.
La contribución de las personas sobre todo es correr la voz , compartiendo nuestra campaña con todos sus medios de comunicación social y los contactos personales. 
Con su ayuda monetaria vamos a recaudar fondos para seguir ayudando a que los menores no acompañados se integren en sus comunidades, hogares y escuelas. Vamos a ser capaces de eliminar el tatuaje del hombre y de la mujer joven que asi disfruten de un mejor empleo y reduzcan las posibilidades de ser blanco de la violencia o el acoso policial.
Si hace un regalo en línea hoy en día vamos a ser capaces de seguir ayudando a nuestra comunidad en la detención de otro ciclo de violencia y capacitar a nuestros miembros a convertirse en agentes de cambio.

Paula Guadron

Project Coordinator

Currently Paula Guadron is coordinating the Joven Noble (Noble Youth) Program. She has been volunteering her time at Homies’ since the beginning of 2014, and has become familiar with the organization needs and services provided for the youth population. Homies Unidos currently serves. She has earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from CSULA, where she also participated in Cross-Cultural Research to study the Psychological effects of Race and Institutional Discrimination on People of Color. Paula also worked as a Domestic Violence Advocate and Crisis Intervention Worker in collaboration with LAPD to assist victims in the area of Watts. She also has worked at S.T.A.Y. (Standing Together Advocating for our Youth) co-organizer, actively participating in building dialogue about community issues in Echo Park and surrounding areas.
Ms. Guadron advocacy work the last 15 years has been in Environmental Justice, Mental Health, Housing, and Homeless Youth Outreach, as well as Wilderness Restoration and Preservation. Paula is a L.A. native, born and raised in Echo Park in the 1980’s. As an Echo Park local, her experiences as an LGBTQ-Salvadorian-Mexican-Chicana youth of color/urban native have instilled in her sense of responsibility to her extended community, and an urgency to make immediate social changes. She is committed to co-creating alternative, pro-social, effective solutions to community mental health needs, specifically for underserved groups such as Central-American youth and their families. I believe in non-violent transformative justice, and in the potential of all marginalized groups to become healthy, successful, and thriving community members.

Alex Sanchez

Alex Sanchez, is the Executive Director of the Los Angeles branch of Homies Unidos, an organization in the Pico Union and Koreatown area of Los Angeles with a sister organization in San Salvador. A former gang member who after serving prison time California State Prison was deported back to El Salvador in 1994. While in El Salvador he was targeted by Death Squads operating in his home town. He returned committed to change his life for the better. In 1998 he started implementing programs geared to youth in gangs. In 2000 he was targeted by the Rampart police and became part of the infamous Rampart scandal, Alex was freed later that year and in 2002 won Political Asylum. He continues his work in the community. He has received countless awards and recognitions from the City of Los Angeles, Organizations and Foundations.
To understand the Gang subculture, you need to understand how politics and policy has played a major role in spreading gangs from Los Angeles to other continents. Alex’s expertise in gang subculture and youth criminalization developed through his experiences as gang member. His dedication to his community on issues of transnational youth violence and criminalized immigrants has made him a unique expert on the issue. He has testified in court as a gang expert for the defense on countless occasions, testified in California’s legislature and in 2005 testified in the United Nations on massacres of incarcerated people in Honduras. Hi personal experience and dedication to our youth has helped in the development of the first policy defining what Gang Intervention is and the strategy to use to reduce gang violence. This definition was adopted by the City of Los Angeles and is currently being translated into Spanish to be introduced in Juarez, Mexico and hopefully El Salvador. Suppression and incarceration are but a bad aid to cover the root causes of the self-destruction of our youth both in Central America and the United States.
