CIIS Anthropology and Social Change PhD student and Diversity and Disability Fellow Sara Maria Acevedo was interviewed by Bread and Roses, the longest running, feminist radio program in the country for an International Women's Day special.
Part of KBOO Commmunity Radio's weekly programming, Bread and Roses has been on air since 1978. Sara was interviewed for their special "Countering the Western-Centric Narratives: Stories of Resistance from Transnational Women and Non-binary Agents of Change."
Sara was then invited to speak with the "Stories from the brainreels" podcast, part of the Who Am I To Stop It documentary film, where she expanded on her work in Disability Justice.
Sara has been busy this semester, recently hosting the Disability as Diversity Lecture Series, part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion's spring event series, on top of her studies and work with ODI.

Countering the Western-Centric Narratives
Since we believe a woman's place is at the head of the struggle, Bread and Roses presents stories of resistance from transnational women and non-binary agents of change. On International Women's Day, we counter the narrative that non-Western women are in need of white saviors.
