Join us in celebrating Muxeres & Mothers in Movements for Social Justice.

Local and national leaders will come together to reflect, share challenges, lessons, and other experiences they face within the education, labor, environmental & climate justice, and immigration movements.

Through a conversation/panel centering their personal trajectories and their respective roles working on various social issues, the panelists reveal the complexities of existing as a muxer, parent, and leader.
