MANA de Orange County
MANA was founded in 1974 as the Mexican American Women’s National Association, with intent of providing a voice for Mexican-American women at the national, state and local levels.
This strong and unique organization has expanded into a diverse group of Latinas who hold key roles in a variety of political, social and professional fields, making MANA the most influential pan-Latina organization in the U.S.A.
MANA de Orange County, chartered in July 10, 1981, is one of the oldest chapters in the nation with members comprised of Latinas in diverse fields and professions, homemakers, students, and prominent political figures.
The dynamic members of MANA de O.C. reach out to educate, mentor, embrace, support and grow the Orange County Latino community.
MANA de Orange County has provided public service for over 32 years. We are a voice in our community and welcome everyone who supports our mission to join, and be ready to give back to our community.
MANA, a not for profit 501(c)3 organization, accomplishes its mission through the support of selfless members and with generous donations from those that support our mission, “To empower Latinas through leadership development, community service and advocacy.”
MANA, a Membership Organization, is gender and ethnic inclusive.
