A Message from our Executive Director

January 2017

Dear CLF familia,
As many of you undoubtedly share our feelings of fear and anger after the outcome of our elections, we hope you also share our determination to stand together to resist and to defend our families and our communities.
Let us move forward to rejoice and celebrate each other's spirit. Let us not have our joy be taken away from us. Since November 8th, I have found strength in your words, in the reminders of our lineage of struggle, perseverance, resistance and victories. And nowhere have I found more hope and inspiration than from our very own CLF sister board members, the current scholarship awardees and our Alumnae.

CLF Announces
Executive Director Position

Dear Friends/Amig@s,

During our last CLF Board retreat in March, our work involved preparing for the succession of our Executive Director, Olga Talamante. Each board member took a moment to share how and when we met Olga. Many of us go back 20 to 30 years and have witnessed her life long activism, tenacity and authentic commitment to friendship, leadership, mentoring and knowledge of her many communities. Our stories made us laugh and cry and, above all, say out loud that Olga's tacones will indeed be hard to fill.

Olga has grown the Chicana Latina Foundation into a very well respected and regarded organization in the community, with huge impact on hundreds of emerging Latina leaders.

She is ready for the next chapter in the exciting time and life of Olga Talamante. We too as a board are preparing ourselves for the next Executive Director and we will together build upon the foundation Olga has put in place.

We will not say goodbye to our Querida Olga, but instead say to our COMADRE, AMIGA y HERMANA:

"Nos vemos pronto and always you will be
La Mera Mera Madrina de CLF!"
With love and cariño,
The CLF Board of Directors
