Isa Woldeguiorguis: “I am humbled to join the legacy of advocates who have devoted their lives to ending sexual violence that date back to the likes of Ida B. Wells in the 1870’s and Rosa Parks in the 1940’s.
Today, I am privileged to work alongside amazing activists at The Center for Hope and Healing continuing that legacy. Niki Tsongas is a leader and champion in our community who listened to the voices of survivors, including those in the military, and who had the courage to not only stand with them, but to stand up for them and create policy and legislative change that has saved lives. I am honored to be the Congresswoman’s guest and to stand beside her and like-minded legislators tomorrow night.”
While the 9 pm networks will air the State of the Union Address, we urge you to tune in online at 8 pm as women gather in D.C. to present The State of OUR Union.
