First we deprive them of resources and then we judge them
Join us in a conversation about the challenges faced by families, particularly those that are young and poor. Learn about efforts to address these issues and to change the public discourse on what it means to be a strong family.
We will speak with Amanda Wake, Youth Organizing Manager for Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice in Oakland, CA. ACRJ promotes and protects reproductive justice through organizing, building leadership capacity, developing alliances and by educating to achieve community and systemic change.
We will also have Aimee Santos Lyons, who is the Strong Families Northwest Program Manager for Western States Center here in Portland. WSC is helping to build a progressive movement in eight western states, from Alaska to Wyoming and down to Nevada.
