Sandra coordinates and presents programs that will empower, inspire and inform our youth, disengaged women, mothers, Elders and mainstream communities facing issues that will help them make changes for the betterment of their family, themselves and our nation.


Sandra's programs enable our Elders to stay in touch with our continuing growing community and with businesses who want to learn and participate in our cultural diversity programs and breaking down the barriers. ​​
