Don’t Miss This White Fund Presentation by Renowned Human Rights Activist Minou Tavárez Mirabal!
Minou Tavárez Mirabal, famed activist, politician, and philologist, will discuss national policy, female empowerment, and violence against women in today’s world.
She is the daughter of the late Dominican Republic political activist Minerva Mirabal Tavarez, who, along with two of her sisters, founded the 1960 Movement of the Fourteenth of June to overthrow Dominican dictator Rafael “El Chivo” Trujillo. The story was widely popularized through the award-winning 1994 novel “In the Time of the Butterflies” by Julia Alvarez. Her talk will include the Mirabal sisters’ account.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be delivered in Spanish. English translation will also be available on site.
Presented by NECC, The White Fund Enlightenment Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
