Jollene Levid honors many of the women in her life, including herself, that are survivors of some form of violence through her work as the AF3IRM Founding Chairperson, a United Teachers Los Angeles union organizer, and social worker. Although the trauma of violence, war and migration may have passed down from generation to generation, Jollene shares that survival and resilience have also been passed down to the current generation. She believes that this strength is our power today and why (for 17 years and counting) she continues to fight for immigrant women's rights against militarism and trafficking of women and children.
