Developing Diverse Leadership in El Paso

Athenas vision for the city of El Paso is to be a place that fosters informed and active communities that will work together to build power and develop leaders in order to ensure that no voices are muted and no communities are marginalized or underrepresented. Athena worked to build a broad-based coalition of progressive organizations to register, educate, and mobilize voters in the 2012 election. Her goal was for the coalition become a space for like-minded organizations to to achieve common goals, share and receive useful skills and information, and to develop new leaders to carry this work forward.
