In 2019, the California Legislature passed significant pieces of legislation that furthered gender equality and protected the human rights of women and girls.

An incredibly powerful response from Karla Guerra in this short video about her experiences in El Salvador with the daily inescapable prevalence of domestic violence and how that informed her becoming an activist.

What an honor to facilitate this conversation and hear voices from young leaders like Karla, Jessica and Swarnima!
