About Us

About Us

Founded in 2019, Fortaleza is a 501(c)(4) organization in North Carolina that is building collective power through leadership development and organizing. Our state is home to a growing Latinx community: almost one million strong! We focus on educating all Latinx community members in our networks, building relationships with intention, engaging communities in political education, and inspiring community members to get involved in the political process. We work side by side with pro-Black, pro-immigrant, pro-LGBTQ, and pro-reproductive justice partners and allies to lift our collective voices to ensure that we can control our stories and destinies.

Together, we are creating a better North Carolina for all.

Mission

The mission of Fortaleza is to:

Build an intergenerational community of leaders who work together to increase the civic knowledge and participation of the Latinx community in North Carolina. 

 

Create a collective agenda that is pro-Black, pro-immigrant, pro-LGBTQ, and pro-reproductive justice.

 

Work with our base of leaders to generate organic, bilingual content that educates community members and empowers them with the skills and knowledge they need to take action through advocacy and civic engagement. 

Vision

The vision of Fortaleza is that by building collective power through leadership development and organizing, the Latinx community and other marginalized communities are able to control our own stories and destinies.
