Activist and advocate for women’s rights visiting us from Nicaragua, Martha will share first-hand how the current situation of civil unrest in Nicaragua has unfolded and what it means for her and for her country.

Martha is a collaborator, working with a number of international and national NGO’s in defense of women’s rights, specifically economic and reproductive rights and the right to live free from violence. She has participated in multiple Global Youth Forums and the Latin-American Feminist Congress.

Since 2016, Martha has been a member of the Young Leaders Program for Women Deliver, a global advocate organization for girls’ and women’s health, rights, and wellbeing. Earlier this year, Martha traveled into the BOSAWAS, Nicaragua as a gender consultant with Change for Children to deliver gender equality workshops in remote indigenous territory. This year’s Dinner will focus on Gender Equality and the importance of making room at the table for women and girls when it comes to decisions that impact their lives, their families, and their communities.
