Join us for an interactive dialogue with community organizer and activist Cynthia Brito who will share her personal journey as a teen mother and how she organizes against the inequalities of Latina women living in our communities. Through her story and community involvement she will focus on issues of domestic violence, reproductive justice, and immigration.

Cynthia Brito is a Master’s alumna of the UIC Latin American and Latino Studies Program. She has been recognized for her activism by the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, is a co-founder of the Latin@ Youth Action League, and is president of the Dare to Dream: Get Educated annual conference for Latina teens.

If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.
