About Us

Overall Mission

Latina Republic empowers Immigrants in the United States and advances Social Justice in Central America. We value our regional ties and shared histories. We seek to become impactful change-agents for Immigrant families in Orange County, CA and build bridges with our neighbors to the South.

Latina Republic is a 501(C)3 California-based nonprofit organization with a dual mission, internationally, we partner with NGOs in the Northern Triangle, domestically we empower the immigrant community in Orange County, California through bilingual immigrant integration curricula, family stabilization, parent education workshops, and responsible fatherhood programming.

The domestic mission is delivered through its emphasis on immigrant rights advocacy and family empowerment. The programs that deliver the mission include Immigration Writer Internships. Latina Republic offers competitive nationwide internships to university students who join our mission as contributors to our ethnic press. Our immigration writers engage in research and conduct interviews to shed light on nationwide nonprofit efforts to improve the immigrant experience in the United States, and analyze immigrant legislation affecting immigrant lives. 

In addition to the educational and story advocacy component, the domestic vision is carried out through our second program: Immigrant & Family Empowerment. This program is delivered through a Responsible Fatherhood Curriculum based on the National Fatherhood Initiative, and Immigrant Empowerment Workshops, including parent education, career advancement strategies, reentry information to empower adults to pursue education, including adult school, vocational training, community college, and immigrant integration curricula. Resources for virtual and in person delivery of these evidence-based sources are produced by family resource specialists, and the Executive Director. Delivery of all trainings is carried out virtually and in-person (pending COVID19 guidelines) through allyship with community partners who are passionate about families, immigration and service. 

The international mission is implemented through our ethnic press working with university students who train and write as Latin American Correspondents. Our writers  bring to light the daily experiences of living in Latin America with the goal of destroying stereotypes and building alliances with our neighbors to the south. The international mission is also carried out through international alliances and grant agreement. We partner with awarded NGOs to advance their missions and seek funding to help support humanitarian causes that improve their chances to sustain and affect positive change.
