Lucero Jorge: Adjusting to & Leading After College

65 minutes

So many Dominican-Americans are student leaders early in their life, either at their schools or in their neighborhood communities. Yet, what happens after graduation? This week, we talk to Sanctuary for Families’ Lucero Jorge about being a leader after college, (re)defining Latinidad and what she has learned working with families dealing with gender-based violence.

It's our way of leaning into this holiday season of thanks, paying attention to our younger generation and starting a discussion around gender violence on the heels of the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
