Join Andrea-Teresa Arenas, coauthor of the Society Press collection "Somos Latinas: Voices of Wisconsin Latina Activists", and Hector Salazar, Outreach and Recruitment Specialist with the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, for a discussion of the Wisconsin Latina activists.

"Somos Latinas" shares the powerful narratives of 25 activists from outspoken demonstrators to collaborative community-builders to determined individuals working for change behind the scenes- providing proof of the long-standing legacy of Latina activism throughout Wisconsin. "Somos Latinas" draws on activist interviews conducted as part of the Somos Latinas Digital History Project, housed at the Wisconsin Historical Society, and looks deep into the life and passion of each woman.
