Casa Atabex Aché has a rich legacy of supporting womyn of color to reconnect with their individual and collective powers of healing and action so they may transform their lives, families and communities. Utilizing a holistic model, Casa's mission is to support the emotional, spiritual, physical and intellectual development of womyn and their health needs related to their experiences of abuse and neglect. Casa has two core constituencies: young and adult womyn of color living in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx as well as young and adult womyn of color organizers on the frontline (e.g. activists, social workers, teachers, etc.).
If the motion picture were an art form that involved the olfactory senses - in other words, if cinema smelled - then films like Slumdog Millionaire would not win Oscars. The stench of that kind of poverty wouldn’t blend with the aroma of warm popcorn.
