Hanncel Sanchez

Founder of Mujeres in Action (MiA)

Hanncel Sanchez founded Mujeres in Action (MiA) in 2018 after her volunteer work at a sexual assault survivors’ helpline revealed that her community was missing from these calls even though she knew that people were experiencing similar crises in Spokane’s Latino community. For the last five years, Sanchez has made it her and MiA’s mission to be breaking down access and language barriers for people in need. Her advice to others: “If there is a change you want to bring to the community, I dare you to do it. You can do it!”
