The Mission of Mujeres de Colores is to elevate the status of women and children through education and leadership. The vision of Mujeres de Colores is for all women of color to realize their potential.
The Backpack Program is held each year the first Tuesday of August in conjunction with Neighborhood Night Out in the Tres Colonias. This program helps provide children of all backgrounds - working class and low-income families - with a new backpack and supplies to start the new school year.
Since its inception, hundreds of children and families have been helped by our Backpack Program. In addition, holding this event in conjunction with Neighborhood Night Out helps to foster neighborhood connections and offers an opportunity for families to get to know one another.

Los Betabeleros honors the contribution of the Hispanic and Mexican beet workers, giving recognition to a forgotten people. Through personal oral histories, the life and working conditions of the beet workers are recognized and acknowledged. This film is dedicated to not only the past but the present immigrant community that is still working the fields to put food on our table. These truly are The Hands That Feed.
