Young Activists is from a series about a women’s human rights grassroots organization named Gabriela. Their work supports the Filipino diaspora and is in alliance with other Filipino organizations protesting the human rights violations of the Duterte regime in the Philippines. Gabriela’s support of Black Lives Matter and LGBTQIA+ issues is an important aspect of their vision of social justice. In light of the recent increase in hate crimes towards Asians, Gabriela’s work is all the more salient.
