Meet Jovita Morales; Leader of Minnesota Immigrant Movement. Our First Resilient Resister!

We are proud to introduce our first Resilient ReSister, Jovita Morales. Jovita Morales remembers vividly the day she became an activist regarding Minnesota driver’s licenses. The day was when her two children were returning from a field trip organized by Waite House. Their school bus was on the 35W bridge when it collapsed August 1, 2007.

Resilient ReSisters are Minnesota women who are making a difference in their communities; large or small, loud or quiet.

If you know of someone we should feature please email us admin@womensmarchmncom.
