Mamas on Bedrest: An Interview with Paula Rojas, Community Organizer, Social Justice Activist and Co-Founder of Mamas of Color RisingAugust 31st, 2012
Today I had the great joy and privilege to interview my friend, Paula Rojas. Paula is one fierce woman for women! As a community organizer, she has 20 years of experience in helping communities come together to address causes of vital importance and to fight for solutions that will be for the good of the community. After moving to Austin over 5 years ago, Paula helped poor and low income Black and Latina women organize Mamas of Color Rising, a grassroots social justice and social activist organization. The group is currently completing initiatives in its Birthing Justice Campaign and Paula shares with us some of the other social issues the group is contemplating addressing as agents of social change.
