For Women's History Month, Millennial Leaders Reflect On Their Work And Who Inspires Them

Mar 19, 2019

March is Women’s History Month, and here at Valley Public Radio, we wanted to spend a part of it talking to women who are young leaders here in the Central Valley.

We spoke with Yasmin Mendoza, organizer of the Fresno Chapter of March for Our Lives and a community organizer with the Dolores Huerta Foundation; Alexandria Ramos-O’Casey, who most recently was a consultant on the campaign for Kingsburg City Councilmember Jewel Hurtado; and Kamaljit Kaur, who is the Fresno County community organizer for the Jakara Movement.

 Listen to the audio above to hear the three talk about being young women of color in community organizing roles, and the pushback they say they face regularly.
