Follow the Radical Monarchs, a scouting troop of young girls of color at the front lines of social justice, founded by two fierce, queer women.
Meet the Radical Monarchs, a scouting troop in Oakland where Thin Mints are put aside in favor of earning badges like “Black Lives Matter” and “Radical Beauty.” Queer activists Anayvette Martinez and Marilyn Hollinquest co-founded the Monarchs to create a safe space in their community for young women of color to learn about social justice, self-acceptance, body positivity, inclusion, intersectionality, allyship, and more. From their upstart beginnings through the divisive 2016 election, the urgency of their mission is ever-salient as they inspire a new generation of fierce, feminist warriors!
