Guerreras podcast is dedicated to empower and guide Latinas to find their political voice and use it to empower their community and the country. And because of that, we also strive to ensure that such women one day run to lead -- because its their voices that we need for our future.
In today's episode (which is so late I apologize!) we have two formidable scholars, Dr. Celeste Montoya (she/her) Associate Professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and political scientist in the Department of Women and Gender Studies - as well as Mariana Galvez Seminario (they/them), undergraduate student and also Dr. Montoya’s co-author in her most recent published article Guerreras y Puentes: The theory and praxis of Latina(x) activism. Here we talk about the importance of Latinas' as organizers and leaders within coalition building. such as leading non-profit organizations and becoming beacons of hope for the future of Latinx representation.
In today’s episode, we have Maricruz Osorio, a PhD student in the Department of Political Science at UC Riverside! Maricruz is a McNair Fellow, APSA (American Political Science Association Fellow), and recipient of a Latino Fund Grant.
Maricruz’ research asks why do some immigrants, and women in particular, with different statuses (DACA, undocumented, asylum seekers, and refugees) engage in risky political behavior. And by risky, or the uncertainty of the outcome, there doesn’t appear to have the same repercussions across different citizenship statuses. In this episode, we talk about women in political science, community support amongst scholars, and books that have saved our lives.
In this episode, my guest is Abbey Nawrocki, host of the "Well, that's a problem!" podcast. In today's episode we talk about the SCOTUS decision on reproductive freedoms, what that means for women of color, and how to organize around this issue.
In today's episode I talk about the need for non-Black Latinas to educate themselves in how to become aware on the anti-Blackness our community perpetuates. With the rise of the nation-wide protests around the country due to the murder of Ahmaud Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, we as allies have to do our part to educate our community, share our platforms in solidarity, and support Black women in the fight for justice.
In today's quick rebirth episode, I talk about some of my insecurities as Guerreras began to get popular among the podcasting world.
And why because of that, I needed to take some time away to rebrand and give birth to the new vision I have for Guerreras and my role within it.
In today's episode we're joined by Abbey Nawrocki from Purdue University who will be talking to us about the importance of reproductive justice, and why Latinas should (need) to be involved in the movement! Check you her podcast "Well, now that's a problem"!
On today’s episode, I talk about the hypersexualization of Kiara Cervante (#ICEBae), hypersexualization as a weapon, and how Kiara’s viral fame will have a negative effect on any effort of trying to abolish ICE.
This episode covers why some folks would see speaking Spanish at the democratic presidential debates as a form of pandering. We also talk about how there is a form of internalized oppression Latinx inflict on themselves when they choose to not learn Spanish.
To give you an idea of what Guerreras will consist of! We will have an episode a week that is at least 40 minutes, and I will do my best to break down politics, Latinx politics, and feminism for you all. As well as to answer any questions you may have for me! Follow us on Instagram at @guerreras_cr
