is pleased to announce the publication of
LATINAS: Struggles & Protests in 21st Century USA
Edited by Iris Morales
This anthology is a timely collection of poetry and prose reflecting on women’s lived experiences and the ways that Latinas address the relationship between gender and social change. Edited by longtime activist, Iris Morales, the writers are poets and activists, educators, artists, and journalists engaged in a variety of work across the country from community organizing to university teaching. The selections illustrate how Latinas understand and resist the gendered conditions of their lives. They expose inequities that Latinas face as women but also by class; race, ethnicity, and national origin; immigration status; social location; and the legacy of history. The volume is most closely aligned with the view of feminism as a movement to end sexist oppression, both its institutional and individual manifestations.
LATINAS: Struggles & Protests in 21st Century USA is available on Amazon in print and ebook versions.

International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024)

The United Nation proclaims the International Decade for People of African Descent, January 1, 2015 - December 31 2024, with the theme “People of African descent: recognition, justice and development”.

In proclaiming this Decade, the international community is recognizing that people of African descent

represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected. Around 200 million

people identifying themselves as being of African descent live in the Americas. Many millions more

live in other parts of the world, outside of the African continent.


"We must remember that people of African descent are among those most affected by racism. Too often, they face denial of basic rights such as access to quality health services and education."

— United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
