In SOLIDARITY with workers here in LA and around the world Comida No Bombas and The Ovarian Psycos will be riding from East Los Angeles Community College to the protest in #DTLA

“We write our story every day that we educate ourselves, every time we go to work, and the times we have become the backbone of our familia and comunidad. A mujer is much more than a mother, a daughter and a wife. She is strength, she is knowledge, she is change! Join the Chicana/o Latina/o Student Resource Center and our affiliated clubs and organizations as we celebrate all the mujeres revolucionarias who have planted the seeds that we continue to cultivate. “
