The Sixth Annual International Women’s Day Campaign Celebrates Women Around the World. Every spring Enlace Comunitario reaches out to our many individual and business sponsors for the International Women’s Day Campaign . Now in its sixth year, the campaign celebrates women’s strength and autonomy while highlighting the affects of domestic violence and the importance of women’s health.
There are many ways you can be a part of our celebration of International Women’s Day. You can honor a woman by making a donation to Enlace. The woman you choose to honor will receive a certificate to commemorate your appreciation. You can host a house party to raise money for Enlace Comunitario. You can also attend events hosted by our Prevention Leaders the Promotoras.
One way that we raise money for our International Women’s Day Campaign is through “House Parties.” Supporters of Enlace Comunitario open their homes to their friends and neighbors and throw parties on our behalf. These parties feature great food, entertainment, silent auctions and education about Enlace Comunitario.
Pauline Lucero Esquivel has thrown a house party every year since the inception of our International Women’s Day Campaign. “I think that the work that Enlace Comunitario does is extraordinary,” said Pauline. “Our extended family has been affected by domestic violence and I know what it does to kids and families.” Pauline has raised over $20,000 for Enlace Comunitario through her house parties. “I never considered myself a fundraiser but I said, ‘Well, I can invite people to my house… it was easy!” said Pauline. Pauline wants to bring Enlace Comunitario’s mission of assisting immigrant families to the Albuquerque community.

This year, for the first time, the Promatoras are hosting a fundraising event. On May 19th, we will be throwing a party in a park in Albuquerque. There will be food, music, entertainment for children and education about domestic violence. It is an opportunity for the local community to support Enlace Comunitario.
