Diverse. Empowered. Local. Revolutionary.
Here at Power Through Peace, we believe these words help us find the leaders in our community who help shed light on important issues. To help them continue to grow and achieve their goals of solidarity, we are promoting a single activist for every month who we will help them in creating a spotlight so they will continue to fight for our families and future.
Join us we welcome JULY 2017's REVOLUTIONIST OF THE MONTH:
Reyes Devore is a Mother, Pueblo woman, Environmental
Activist and advocate in all that she does. She is a community organizer who believes in changing social systems. As an early childhood professional and parenting educator, she believes that parents create the first environment for the next generation. She knows as a mother to a young man, who will be a leader of the next generation, how important it is to immerse so they can see how resilient and powerful they are. Reyes utilizes community resources by connecting them together to create meaningful opportunities for the individuals she works with, both in urban and tribal communities. Her direct service work is rooted in empathy, optimism, and compassion, as she sees that the systems built, aren’t truly there for the people. Daily she strives to provide hope and instill empowerment within the community with this work ethic she hopes to create change.
Check out her spotlight @ powerthroughpeace.org.*
Reyes will be discussing community organizing in her pueblo, the continued fight of environmental racism, and how we can help her in her fight for justice.
