Casa De Esperanza: National Latin@ Network

When the “battered women’s movement” was still young in the late 1970’s, a small group of Latina activists gathered in St. Paul, MN, to educate their communities and advocate for Latinas. Casa de Esperanza incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1982 and opened a shelter.
