F*it Radio: The Personal Is Political

Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health

On this episode of F*it Radio, Jessica González-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health shares her personal story of being assaulted by protesters outside a Planned Parenthood and how the experience turned her into an activist for reproductive justice. 

Jessica spoke from the stage at the Women's March on Washington just a couple of weeks ago and at Worn's live F*it the night before the March. The story of her political awakening and how simply getting healthcare turned into a "political act of courage" truly moved us. Take a listen.
