LIPS (Latinas Increasing Political Strength) Leadership Institute & Mentorship Program
Latinas Increasing Political Strength (LIPS) is a leadership institute designed for Latinas, by Latinas. The program is open to youth 16-21 years old in the Denver metro area, and engages participants in a vibrant community of activists.
LIPS mentors the next generation of Latina leaders to promote the advancement of the Latino community and advocate for reproductive justice issues. Our programs serve as entry points for young Latinas to become engaged with organizing and advocacy.
