Claudia D. Hern?índez
Today's Revolutionary Women of Color Project was founded on October 1, 2012. The project's vision is to highlight everyday women who transform their communities with their art, activism, and careers. This is being accomplished through a photography book, video interviews, and a photography exhibit. Fifty women have been interviewed and photographed so far.

These women of color who are artists, activists, professors, engineers, writers, and poets; they courageously share their stories of resilience on video to inspire and empower young girls. They discuss themes that deal with: sexism, discrimination, assimilation, language, immigration, abuse from medical institutions, educational institutions, mental illnesses, physical illnesses, sexual abuse, grief, among others. Please visit TRWOC website to watch the interviews.
TRWOC wants to expand and share its vision to other communities. In order to accomplish this, we have launched an EBAY art auction to raise the necessary funds to publish a photography book. We need your monetary support to achieve our goal. This book will be given to women who attend the opening night of the photography exhibit.
