Listen to FUFA Organizer Manju Rajendran on Chicago Public Radio as she discusses the media's distortion of the Chris Brown-Rihanna story and calls on journalists to profile young women and genderqueer youth of color who are courageous, resilient, and powerful organizers against violence.
FUFA is a group of young women and genderqueer youth that uses media-justice work and other organizing tactics to speak out against gender-based violence. Last year, the Ms. Foundation for Women honored Yunuen Rodriguez of FUFA with the Marie C. Wilson Young Woman's Leadership Award.
