020: "It’s okay, you just gotta get organized." Our ability to get organized and build power in the face of multiple oppressions with Jollene Levid

Jollene Levid honors many of the women in her life, including herself, that are survivors of some form of violence through her work as the AF3IRM Founding Chairperson, a United Teachers Los Angeles union organizer, and social worker. Although the trauma of violence, war and migration may have passed down from generation to generation, Jollene shares that survival and resilience have also been passed down to the current generation. She believes that this strength is our power today and why (for 17 years and counting) she continues to fight for immigrant women's rights against militarism and trafficking of women and children.

ABOUT US
Welcome to The Filipino American Woman (TFAW) Project by THENEWFILIPINA.COM. In the summer of 2019, our show originally focused on stories and life lessons told by Filipino American women. We transitioned to Jen and Nani's journey as content creators and entrepreneurs in the upcoming seasons. As we plan for our next season, we hope to encapsulate the common thread in every episode: to strengthen everyday Filipina voices - one conversation at a time.
