“My sole reason for creating the Community Empowerment Alliance is to empower my community to work to better itself. My desire to make change is driven by desire to make your community a better place.”
When raising my children I made sure they had the best educational opportunities provided to them, and while doing so I realized that not everyone was able to provide this to their children. In this moment, I decided it was time for me to take action. Education is one of the keys to the elimination of poverty. How do we empower our children to seek higher education? We have to advocate and use the voices of many to speak out. This was the beginning for me.
After many years working with citizens in needs of health care services, I realized that without a voice, without a cause. I was one person with limited means to impact change. I formed CEA and gather strong community leaders and engaged many voices to speak out. We are missioned focused. We are empowering others to take on this fight for equal access.
So, here we are today, organized, empowered and community based. We need your support to make your voice heard to help you, to help someone else.
