Talk Story with Women’s March Founder
Women’s March-Hawaii News Release
“I will always be proud of being the first to say ‘let’s march’ and to be the mother of the movement, in solidarity with thousands of wonderful women volunteers.” These are the words of Teresa Shook, a Hana, Maui resident, who sparked the flame that grew in days to become the historic Women’s March in Washington, DC on January 21, 2017.
Women’s March-Hawaii, in partnership with Kalele Bookstore, invites Molokai residents to talk story with Teresa, on April 19 from 5 to 7pm at Kalele Bookstore and Divine Expressions. Teresa is a retired lawyer and an educator who spent 30 years working for social justice, representing underserved communities, advocating for youth, and helping victims of domestic violence. She raised two sons as a single mom and is Tutu to her four grandchildren. She continues her work for equality and social justice with Women’s March-Hawaii and its dedicated team of volunteer organizers.
Join this timely gathering with Teresa and other community members. This talk story is open to all ages and for all Molokai residents wanting to learn about community civic engagement for our island.
