Through the Eyes of Rebel Women

Sponsored by: US Health Justice Collaborative

The Yale US Health Justice Collaborative, Citywide Youth Coalition, and Yale Forestry’s Environmental Media & Arts Student Interest Group are proud to welcome Iris Morales, JD, community activist, attorney, educator, director, and author to New Haven for a series of events to be held across the city. A former member of the Young Lords Party, Morales has spent 30 year helping develop organizations dedicated to grassroots organizing and community empowerment, such as the Manhattan Neighborhood Network, the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, and the New Educational Opportunities Network.

Morales is the director of the documentary ¡Palante Siempre Palante!: The Young Lords, and author of the book Through the Eyes of Rebel Women: The Young Lords, 1969-1976. Her visit will serve to bring the New Haven and Yale University community together for a series of events that discuss community organizing toward social justice from the perspective of one of the most influential organizations of the era.

At this event, Morales will speak on themes from her book,  “Through the Eyes of Rebel Women: The Young Lords, 1969-1976” which framed women’s equality within the Young Lords Party as the ‘revolution within the revolution’. Lunch will be provided
