Christina López , Chicana activist and feminist theoretician presents a unique view of the crucial, but often ignored, leadership role that immigrant women play in the U.S. workforce and society.
Ms. López's recently published, Estamos en la Lucha: Immigrant Women Light the Fire of Resistance offers a moving account of conditions faced by both documented and undocumented immigrant women. It explores the role of xenophobia, economic reliance on immigrants, the military-industrial-prison-border complex, and how female militancy impacts the labor movement.
Ms. López is President of Radical Women Seattle and the 2012 Freedom Socialist Party (FSP) candidate for vice president of the United States.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
