Our Speakers

Phillip Kim is a community organizer with the California Nurses Association / National Nurses United, based in Sacramento, CA. He works on the union’s Medicare for All and CalCare campaigns. Before working for CNA, Phillip was a campaign staffer on the Bernie 2016 campaign and was a proud shop steward and casino worker with UNITE HERE Local 49. – Phillip will speak on Single Payer Health Care legislation in 2023.

 

Maryam Lucia Portillio, Sierra College Supervisor Undocumented and International Support Service – Maryam will be speaking on Iranian Women’s Rights to Freedom. The Woman Life Freedom movement was sparked by the horrific murder of Mahsa Amini, a young Kurdish Iranian who was beaten by the government’s morality police in September 2022, for not adhering to strict headdress codes imposed by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s governing body. Outraged by the murder, thousands of people marched across Iran chanting “Woman Life Freedom,” to call for an end to the oppression of women. These marches set in motion a revolution of the people to overthrow the theocratic government and establish a democratic government that views all members of its society as equal. This presentation will provide insight into the experiences of the civilians who are fighting for democracy, the connection of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s grievous abuses of human rights beyond the nation’s boundaries, and the actions every person can do to let our elected representatives know we are asking for intervention.
