WEAVE: Jennie Hernandez Gin

"Believe in yourself and what you

easily."

Why WE Honor Her

As victims of domestic violence who were tired of living in fear and with little support, Sandra Orozco Stapleton, Ramona Delgado and Jennie Hernandez Gin founded WEAVE (Women Escaping A Violent Environment). WEAVE is the first and only organization in the Sacramento region to provide emergency shelter and support services to victims of domestic violence and their children. Stapleton, Delgado and Gin also challenge the Sacramento community and government to become aware of domestic violence as a social and legal issue. They open their homes to victims and serve as advocates on behalf of the victims with law enforcement and social service agencies. WEAVE helps over 6,000 victims every year through their nationally recognized domestic violence and sexual assault agency.

  • I am so proud of my sister Jennie. I remember her always going to a meeting for things for which I knew nothing about. She even took me to many of those meeting and I did not appreciate how what she was doing was helping the greater good of other women. Now that I am older and realize all of the sacrifices she made to help other women, It inspires me every time I see her. She still to this day helps others whether it is her neighbors in her community or her family and friends including me. I love you Sis and you mean the world to me.
