EN VOZ ALTA

About

We know that a comprehensive national security posture emphasizing diplomacy, reducing the threat of nuclear weapons, and reining in military spending is the most effective way to protect the American people. We also know that women are key to solving our nation's toughest challenges. Latinas are woefully underrepresented in national security—but we are working to change that. The En Voz Alta program pairs Latina mentors from the peace and security community with early-career professionals and students from local universities.
