Sanchez will be speaking about her experiences as a lifelong advocate for human rights and what inspired her to follow this path. She will also be answering questions from the audience. Sanchez is currently featured in the "From Suffrage to #MeToo: Groundbreaking Women in Sonoma County" exhibition.As a labor organizer, Sanchez orchestrated successful union campaigns at several hotels in the county and helped shape the Workers’ Center on Corby Avenue in Santa Rosa, a clearinghouse for workers and their families. She also helped found a countywide women’s group, Mujeres Unidas, aimed at addressing Latina issues. She has played many roles over the years at KBBF, a bilingual radio station, and is currently the president of the board. Her passionate advocacy now plays out over the airwaves, at events, and at protests.
