In 1996-97, we undertook the process of becoming an independent non-profit organization and hiring our first Executive Director and beginning to employ campesinas as organizers and staff. Our growing number of chapters began to meet monthly to unearth and address the most pressing needs of women in the community. Statewide we hosted biennial convenings, trainings, and community education projects and began to partner closely with government agencies and institutions such as local health departments, shelters, and policy makers to shape programs and policies that more effectively meet the needs of campesinas.
