We help women around the world who are victims of domestic violence and women in need by providing the tools to help them move forward in their lives

The Fundacion Luz Maria 


Luz Maria Utrera established the Fundacion Luz Maria in the United States. Fundacion Luz Maria works with several organizations that have ECOSOC status around the world to help women who have experienced domestic violence. The Foundation promotes human rights and also assists Fundacíon Luz María based in Santiago del Estero, Argentina that just received ECOSOC status in April 2015. 


To raise public awareness and education on domestic violence of women and children, including those living in Argentina, through the distribution of pamphlets and other materials at community events, via social media, and through facilitating programs and seminars that provide facts on the impact of domestic violence.

To promote and mobilize members of the public, including teenagers and young adults, to serve as advocates at rallies and other public events around the country, in order to stage a powerful and striking condemnation against domestic violence.

To assist victims of domestic violence and women in need of motivation by sponsoring empowerment and self-esteem related programs and directing them to established shelters and other places of protection.

In Argentina, a woman is murdered every 31 hours in a domestic violence incident - according to an NGO.

Now, a protest initiative against this violence, which was supposed to bring a few hundreds together in the centre of Buenos Aires, has now spread to 80 other cities and across the continent on social media. We support this initiative as a wonderful example of the peoples will. #NiUnaMenos (Not One Less) 

 "The Diplomatic Council Global funding program are delighted to support this project reach a global audience, collaborating with NGO's across the world and private and public sector organisations to supercharge the donations raised through matchfunding. 

Luz Maria Utera will be speaking at their Gala event coinciding with the launch of this campaign on January 25." 

Fundacion Luz Maria will be hosting an event during the CSW Commission of Status of women on March 24 to Ending Violence Against Women Globally

We have been working with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) since November 2015 to raise awareness of this campaign.

The Luz Maria Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States.
