At their recent 2018 Dia de los Muertos Benefit, Mujeres de la Tierra honored Adan Ortega with the Benito Juarez Award.  Mujeres de la Tierra is one of the most respected voices for environmental justice. 

Founded over eleven years ago in the City of Los Angeles, Mujeres de la Tierra takes pride in having local, state, and national impact through our values and culturally relevant programs that have won us recognition from the City of Los Angeles and surrounding communities.

Mujeres de la Tierra has the distinction of being one of few Latina founded and led 501(c)(3) environmental equity nonprofits that focuses on the healing of La Madre Tierra (Mother Earth) in Southern California.
