This Women’s History Month, we’re reflecting on the likes of Dolores Huerta and Angela Davis whose invaluable contributions to organizing improved the lives of working-class People of Color. We’re remembering Sasheen Littlefeather, Shirley Chisholm and Marsha P. Johnson, who were unwavering in the face of discrimination and white supremacy.

And as we uplift, celebrate and look back on other extraordinary women who have led this country toward progress, we invite you to explore and share our Women’s History Month playlist, a mix that is woman-centered and curated by members of the CRC staff. Get to know what we’re listening to this month between Zoom meetings, webinars and community events.
