Here is what Visión y Compromiso said about Nancy Halpern Ibrahim:
A woman committed to the well-being of her community, Nancy founded the Promotores program in 1995 at Esperanza Community Housing Corporation with the goal of creating a space for the residents of South Los Angeles where they could strengthen themselves and contribute to their community as Promotores. Nancy has advanced the Promotor model not only in Los Angeles but abroad, doing so with a spirit that characterizes her passion for human rights.
