Sisters of Color United for Education has created economic opportunities, and opportunities for wellness for thousands of individuals, families, generations and across cultures. As Colorado’s Oldest Promotora program, we have forged a path at the forefront of educating and training community health workers, now recognized as a part of the health care system.
