What role do Latinas play in today’s political landscape? Join us for an engaging panel discussion with film shorts regarding the current challenges our nation is facing in maintaining basic human rights, particularly for marginalized communities and women. With the ever-changing policies on environment and healthcare, what can be done to get more people involved in dialogues surrounding issues that affect humanity? Featured speakers will be Carmen Perez and Paola Mendoza, co-chairs of the National Women’s March, joined by Jessica González-Rojas of National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health. They will discuss these issues and present a few film shorts that speak to the crisis at hand.
