Everything we do is interconnected….
We fight for environmental justice so that our communities are healthier.
We break the cycle of violence by educating our youth.
We build women’s natural leadership to lift their families out of poverty and we help families get a healthy start to reverse the negative statistics from the beginning.
Using the knowledge that lies within us, we know that we have the power to change our communities, so that our children and our culture can truly thrive.
– Dr. Corrine Sanchez, executive director
Tewa Women United believes in strengthening and re-strengthening beloved families and communities to end violence against women, girls, and Mother Earth. Through relational-tivity we embody courageous spaces that center Indigenous women and girls to connect with ancestral knowingness, healing strengths, and lifeways for the wellbeing of all. This has been our commitment since our founding in 1989.
This landmark 30th anniversary is a time to reflect on our beginnings and honor our elders. It is also a time to envision our future, and to invite our community to help strengthen our capacity to do this work for the next 30 years and beyond, led by new generations of powerful Indigenous women and their allies. This work has become even more essential and urgent in this time of global pandemic and social transformation.
