    Why AAGOC?

    Tinesia, Gabriela, and Janedra joined together to create a space that women of color can collaborate to support girls of color. Our goal is systemic change, because we firmly believe that when girls of color are in truly supportive environments they naturally thrive and the world benefits.

    The AAGOC Data Dashboard

    The AAGOC Data Dashboard is based upon the Healthy Places Index, a large data set that translates eight indicators (economic, education, healthcare access, housing, neighborhood, clean environment, social, and transportation) that can determine the health outcomes for a specific geographic area. Girls of Color often live in environments that contain obstacles to their inherent ability to thrive. This dashboard provides the data that supports the case for systems change.

    It’s Time to Speak the Unspoken

    It’s Time to Speak the Unspoken

    Rosa Flores shares her story that resonates with many women of color and the girls they once were. The topic of child sexual abuse is difficult to discuss, but we must because our personal and community healing is at stake.



    About the Guest:

    Rosa Flores shares her story that resonates with many women of color and the girls they once were. The topic of child sexual abuse is difficult to discuss, but Rosa does this as her personal and community healing is at stake. In dual roles of being the Director of Programs at Latino Coalition for a Healthy California, and Board Member of My Sister’s House Sacramento, she tackles the topics of the stigma of mental health, intergenerational trauma, and the consequences of self-silencing.



    Why does AAGOC love them and their work?

    Rosa speaks about what often remains unspoken in communities of color. The conversation around child sexual abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence is a conservation every woman and girl of color should have on a regular normalized basis.
