In Two Reasons Why we Must Invest More in Women and Girls of Color, WFN Member, Surina Khan, CEO of The Women’s Foundation of California, illustrates how and why she believes feminist values and leadership are the “powerful tools we need to build the resilience to withstand the myriad of challenges facing us today and to create new systems for our future.”

“Now more than ever, it’s critical we make bold acts of solidarity to help protect our most vulnerable and build resilient communities. When we invest in women and girls of color, we make a decision to embrace gender justice that is grounded in healing and building a future that will liberate us all.”
