MuJER Founder Honored By The White House

On July 27, the White House, along with the U.S. State Department and U.S. AID, honored MuJER founder, Ana Moraga, as someone who has exemplified extraordinary successes and efforts toward the development of – and diplomacy with – their countries or communities of origin.

“The nine Champions of Change we honor today highlight the power of proximity. These members of the Latin American Diaspora remind us that geography matters, that being a good neighbor is both good manners and a good investment.  The Champions that we recognize today have helped their countries and communities of origin, and in doing so have bettered our region as a whole,” said Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson.  “These exceptional individuals, with their work in sports and community development, in education and financial inclusion, inspire others by their example.  In a region with such profound human links between our societies, ideas and inspiration spread quickly to the benefit of people all over the Americas and the Caribbean.”

The Champions of Change program was created as a part of President Obama’s Winning the Future initiative. Each week, a different sector is highlighted and groups of Champions, ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community leaders, are recognized for the work they are doing to serve and strengthen their communities.

As one of the Champions of Change nominees, Ana wrote a featured blog post for the White House website: "Toward an Eternal Spring for Women's Rights"
