SRVUSD HIGH SCHOOL PTSA INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY COMMITTEES PRESENT:

“Stories Build Bridges” Speaker Series

Irma Herrera

TUESDAY, MARCH 23, 6:30-8:00 PM

Our goal is to promote inclusion, unity, and community through conversations about equity.

Irma Herrera is a SF Bay Area-based lawyer, writer, solo-performer, and social justice activista. Her solo play, "Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?," has received critical acclaim. Irma is a native of South Texas and grew up in a Spanish speaking home. Irma spent three decades as a public-interest lawyer, starting in Washington state’s Yakima Valley, representing Spanish-speaking farmworkers. She moved to SF to work at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund and her final law job was 15 years as the Executive Director of Equal Rights Advocates, a SF-based legal organization advancing the interests of women and girls. Irma spent 5 years advocating for educational rights of low-income children, especially English learners. Irma has presented several times in SRVUSD, and we are excited to welcome her back!
