15 women leaders in 15 days.
In honor of its 15th Anniversary, NAPAWF teamed up with Angry Asian Man and Hyphen Magazine to recognize the contributions of 15 APA women leaders who are redefining women leadership. I’m honored to have been nominated by Sulu DC’s own Director of Community Outreach, Peter DeCrescenzo, and to be profiled among such a fierce group of API women.
APA Women Leader Spotlight – Jenny C. Lares
A poet and passionate community leader, Jenny C. Lares’ life work is devoted to promoting social justice and truth. Everywhere is home for her, Jenny says, “as long as she is at home in her own skin.” As the Executive Director of Sulu DC, Jenny believes in molding the self for the self and creating an empowering space for APA artists to express themselves and to engage on array of issues. Drawn from experience and driven by vision, Jenny’s poetry presents compex narratives that challenge conventional perceptions and expressions about race and womanhood.
Fifteen years ago, 156 fierce API women founded the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) to be the organization dedicated to building the movement that advances social justice and human rights for API women and girls in the US.
Today we invite you to be a part of this movement by supporting Jenny, her nomination team Peter DeCrescenzo, as well as NAPAWF. Together we celebrate the past 15 years of achievement and fund the next 15 for API women and girls everywhere. Click here to donate on behalf of Jenny and Peter.
