We are centering young women themselves by recognizing their power.
— Amanda Matos

Very aware of the lack of people who look like her in politics and places of power, Amanda started the WomanHOOD Project, which empowers young women of color in the Bronx to become community leaders. Amanda’s mission to ensure everyone has a voice in decision-making positions has never felt more relevant and urgent. Please support her and the peacemakers pushing for change today.
