Tashmin Ali Board member I am involved in LONA because I believe that every woman has a right to decent employment and self-sufficiency. By providing resources and job opportunities for women who need it most, LONA addresses a critical need for exploited women who would otherwise be stuck in a cycle of poverty.

Amy Gragnolati Board member I believe in LONA's mission of providing impoverished women with practical labor solutions. While LONA offers the resources to help them realize their potential and worth, their fate and success is in their control, which is very empowering.

Cydney Goodin Board member I have chosen to work with LONA because in providing education and skill-training to women, they take this blessing and create beauty to change their lives and their children's lives. Ultimately, women end up giving back to the community and create a domino effect of positive change.
