We recently hosted Radical Monarchs’ Cofounder Anayvette Martinez to learn more about their organization, which creates opportunities for young girls of color to form fierce sisterhood, celebrate their identities and contribute radically to their communities. The talk with Anayvette included the herstory of the Radical Monarch movement, in addition to how methodologies and lived experiences inform our queer feminist social justice praxis; the concept of Radical Joy and the key role it plays in the Radical Monarch movement, especially in these heightened times.
Watch the recording of the conversation below. To learn more about the Radical Monarchs organization, connect with them on social media, and support their movement, visit radicalmonarchs.org
