Adelante Mujeres selected as a finalist for a Green America Green Grant

Forest Grove (June 23, 2010) Adelante Mujeres has been selected as a finalist for a Green Grant Award by the national nonprofit Green America. Adelante Mujeres is a nonprofit in Forest Grove, Oregon whose mission is to provide the holistic education and empowerment of low-income Latina women and their families.

Based on hundreds of nominations of projects across the country, Green America staff selected 10 top projects that benefit people and the planet in local communities and is asking people to vote for their favorites. Adelante Mujeres is the only project based on the West Coast that was nominated. People can vote at http://www.greenamericatoday.org/greengrants/index_voting.cfm through July 19.

Green America will award four Green Grants to local projects in the United States that support its mission of creating a socially just and environmentally sustainable economy. Green America will provide one Grand Prize of $2,500 and three First Prizes of $1,000 in late July. If Adelante Mujeres is selected for a grant, the funds will go towards a restoration and farmscaping project at La Esperanza Farm, a collective farm managed by Adelante Agricultura, the sustainable farming program of Adelante Mujeres.
