Meet another one of our recipients: Jocelyne!

Jocelyne brings to light how we get so comfortable in silence and our oppression that we forget to be a voice for ourselves, and for other marginalized groups who often don’t have a voice. Let’s all work with together to bring an end to the injustice placed of Latinx and all women of color!

¡Viva La Feministas!
