The Guerreras are part of a highly trained community outreach group consisting of workers from SOMOS Mayfair, Amigos de Gualdaupe, Grail Family Services, De Colores Cooperative, and META Cooperative.

The Guerreras come from a long line of Promotoras who were trained in health, justice, and popular education in Mayfair. They have been part of many campaigns ranging from children’s literacy, environmental injustice, educational issues, housing, and other health determinants.

The name Guerrera means “Warrior” and it was chosen because they understood how genocidal COVID-19 could be for our communities and to also acknowledge their dedication to combating COVID-19 relentlessly.
