CONTRERAS | An Ode to Our Trailblazers

Two nights ago, we lost a trailblazing feminist and a hero. In her black cloak, she towered — not in height but in power — and meticulously paved the way for women’s liberation.

In a place where innocent Black and brown individuals are shot in the streets — and they’re falling.
