WIN’s California Women’s Agenda (CAWA) reunited at Harvest Time in the valley. with our Central Valley partners of 10 years. We had all been rallying, marching and resisting. It was time to have a “Converation about ‘what’s been goin’ on in California’s Central Valley the past 10 years and what did women and girls want to do about it. Critcal concerns were on the table such as Water, DACA. Voting, Jobs, Environmental Justice , Violence, Gender Justice, Immigration, Racism, CEDAW, Human Rights, Health Access , Reproductive Rights.
We filmed awards to two women warriors, Mother, Irma Medellin, and Daughter, Isabel Arrollo. heard stories and and testimonials from a panel of young women from ACT for Women and Girls from a Panel of Farmworker women. In their own words what is going on in their lives as rural women. Photos and more about the women and their conversations.
