PodeRosa is a formation and empowerment program for women with disabilities and those women who are close to them so that, together, they can influence their community, delegation, city, state and country’s public policies.
This program was created with support from the Cummins Foundation and Rise Up Foundation who trained us in Advocacy
methodology so that we, in turn, can teach women about human rights, how to exercise them and how to contribute to improvements in laws, regulations and public policies that hold their best interests at heart.
The result of PodeRosa’s first generation was a proposal to mainstream gender perspective in the Inclusion Law for people with disabilities in San Luis Potosí which, as of January 2020 is in the hands of Potosino lawmakers awaiting approval.
*PodeRosa is a play on words. Poderosa means powerful, and rosa means pink, which alludes to the color in the logo, giving it the added meaning of pink power.
