Editor María Cotera and contributors Martha Cotera, Anna NietoGomez, Inés Hernández-Ávila, Samantha Rodriguez, and Stalina Villarreal will present their book Chicana Movidas: New Narratives of Activism and Feminism in the Movement Era, which recovers the histories of Chicana activists during the Chicana/o Movement. Like Gloria Anzaldúa remarked, “We have not one movement but many.” Activists Martha Cotera, Anna NietoGomez, and Inés Hernández-Ávila will talk about their firsthand experiences in la lucha of the 1960s, while María Cotera, Samantha Rodriguez, and Stalina Villarreal will highlight the value of Chicana testimonios. Join us for a night of Chicana feminism!
Más Que Tres (MQ3) is a group of Chicanas who offer a space to openly explore multiple perspectives including art, radio, personal or political issues. This Chicana collective is rooted in: photography, poetry, yoga, dance, education y más!
Drawing on the Mexika principle of the three sisters, MQ3 uses diverse urban experiences to cultivate and bridge communities through innovative approaches. Core topics addressed by this collective encompass feminism, health, empowerment, race and justice.
