Who We Are
SOMOS MUJERES LATINAS (SML) is a non-profit organization. SML's Vision is
to witness a steady increase in the number of Latina women feeling connected,
healthier, informed, educated and more engaged in the community-at large.
Our mission is to connect, educate and empower Latinas in Washington.
Our Annual Latina Symposium
The annual Latina Symposium gives you the opportunity to connect with other latinas in the area, taking your personal experience to a new level where you feel part of a great supportive community. The event offers you a chance to network with other latinas, share your talents or be guided in any new step you are planning in your life.
We, Latina women, we are the ones raising the future. The Latina Symposium was a great opportunity to meet my sisters who daily strive to make a better future for our community and for our children. Together everything is possible.

I learned to value my self even more, it was a day to reaffirm my plans and dreams, I came with no expectations, but the workshops were very inspiring.
I take with me the feeling of being "home" for a few hours this morning with my "family" that sends me back to my normal life in Seattle but with many more tools and much affection.
SML owes much of its leadership, support, and confidence to its Board of Directors. Incorporating the mission and vision of SML, our board is a diverse group of women from different countries including Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Mexico. The members of the Board of Directors have also diverse professional experiences which contribute to advancing our work, maximizing our impact, and incorporating many points of view.
