In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health interviewed Latin@ poderos@s in Texas by asking one simple question: “What makes you poderos@?” Find out how each fierce poderos@ responded in this special blog series.
“My name is Alison Faith Young, and I am a poderos@ Latin@ in the state of Texas! Last semester, I encouraged young people to get out and vote. I’ve also directed The Vagina Monologues, with proceeds going to Mujeres Unidas. It’s important for me to reach out to young girls and answer their questions to the best of my ability regarding relationships and sexuality. I’m passionate about education for women and I want to continue reaching out to women and helping in some way with their ambitions, thoughts, and feelings.”
Alison Faith Young is a Latin@ activist in McAllen, Texas.
