About Us

La Mujer Obrera is a 31-year-old non-profit organization established by displaced women garment workers  to improve the quality of life of low-income Hispanic families and revitalize the former Garment District (Chamizal neighborhood) where many women worked before the loss of 35,000 jobs in that sector.  We are demonstrating the capacity of women workers of Mexican heritage to plan and implement an economic development vision for our community based on basic human needs and rooted in dignity, culture, and respect for the earth.

Today, La Mujer Obrera is an internationally acclaimed community-based organization creating cultural and economic development that recognizes Mexican immigrant workers’ heritage and contributions to El Paso. Our efforts to preserve, adapt, and present the diverse historic and living traditions of the Mexican people are integral to fulfilling the most basic needs and uphold the most basic human rights: access to education, work, health, housing and nourishment, the rights to live in peace and participate fully in civil society.
