“They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t.

I never painted dreams.

I painted my own reality.”

- Frida Kahlo

What is the thing that brings us together? Culture!

Midwest Mujeres focuses on education, employment, and mental health. This project is dedicated to recruiting women with barriers to re-entry work from a long pause or formerly incarcerated women. The groups or facilitators we work with are skilled in holding spaces that foster safety for women, especially women of color. We create circles where the women can use our platform to create campaigns to support their business events and gain support as they embark on a new social media channel. We create a culture of belonging for everyone who wants to celebrate equity, unity, and empowerment for women. That culture is not for everyone.


Building a culture of belonging takes time and allows for new roots and sprouts that might be considered competition, but in our culture, that is not a competition but an empowerment movement becoming a reality. 

Our movement circles are Civil Rights, Mothering, LGBTQ+ in our Latino Community, Inclusive practices, Leadership, feedback, Social Justice, Content Creation, Social Media creation, and business development.

Thank you for your donation! Midwest Mujeres Collective is a mentoring program that supports  Latinas and non-Latina women to up-skill their digital knowledge to grow their own businesses and platforms.
