In 2014 Anayvette Martinez sought to radicalize girl scouting to create a brighter, more brilliant world. Inspired by her daughter, and with the help of co-founder, Marilyn Hollinquest, Anayvette curated a curriculum devoted to justice, empowerment, and fierce sisterhood for girl identified youth of color. On this episode of For The Wild, Anayvette shares the inspiration and impact of the Radical Monarchs, who exemplify the difference between service and justice, the importance of bringing youth into social justice movements at an early age and what we can learn about sustainability, self-care, and avoiding burn out culture by creating with young ones in mind. Anayvette Martinez, co-founder and CEO of Programs & Communications of the Radical Monarchs, is a San Francisco native and child of Central American immigrants. Over the past 15 years, she has developed and managed education, social justice, and gender support programs focused on the empowerment and safety for youth, families and their adult allies.
