Hermanas of the Zeta Alumnae Professional Chapter of Lambda Pi Upsilon Sorority, Latinas Poderosas Unidas, Inc. are walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the autism community.
Autism Awareness is Zetas' Chapter Philanthropy. As Martin, an Autism Speaks Science Intern found, there are many barriers that prevent minority children from being diagnosed and accessing care at an early age. Work needs to be done to increase the number of bilingual providers, gain more access to care/information, lower the costs of culturally and language appropriate tools and to help dispell the misconceptions within that community in relation to the causes of autism.
Please support us by donating and help us meet our fundraising goal of $500.00 - and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism!
Con Amor, Dignidad y Orgullo
