Note Comisión Femenil San Fernando Valley (CFSFV) has its roots in an organization named Mujeres de la Raza that was started by a group of Latina staff and faculty at California State University, Northridge in the early 1970s. In 1991, Mujeres de la Raza formally changed their name to Comisión Femenil San Fernando Valley and became one of the chapters of Comisión Femenil Mexicana Nacional, a leading Chicana activist organization. The focus of CFSFV has been to provide educational, professional and personal development opportunities to young Latina women in the San Fernando Valley. The organization sponsored annual events and programs such as Adelante Mujer Latina Conferences, academic scholarships, annual gala events that honor leading Latina professionals, International Women's Day Celebration, and Celebration of Books. The Comisíón Femenil San Fernando Valley Collection consists of organization activities and programs including correspondence, financial records, fliers, meeting agendas and minutes, membership rosters, newsletters, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, photographs, posters, reports, and videocassettes. Also included are documents that pertain to the Comisión Femenil Los Angeles Chapter and to the Comisión Femenil Mexicana Nacional, the national chapter of the organization.
