Wednesday, October 3, 2018

6:30pm – 8:00pm

85 Waterman St., Room 130

Radical Monarchs co-founders, Anayvette Martinez and Marilyn Hollinquest, will explore the concept of Radical Joy and the key role it plays in the Radical Monarch movement. The Radical Monarchs vision is to empower young girls of color so that they step into their collective power, brilliance and leadership in order to make the world a more radical place. Organized by the Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender, Womxn's History Series, LGBTQ Center, and the Legacy Series, with generous co-sponsorship from the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, Brown Center for Students of Color, Multiracial Heritage Series, Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice, and the Swearer Center.
