Women's Activism NYC

Juana Melara

Date Added:

Meet Juana Melara, a silence breaker, a labor activist, and the resident I had the honor today of naming an LA County Woman of the Year. A hotel housekeeper in Long Beach, Juana's road to activism began after experiencing terrifying and routine sexual harassment on the job. Since then, Juana has joined forces with Unitehere! Local 11 to demand common-sense policy changes which protect workers from abuse and ensure that the next generation hotel housekeepers don't have to work in fear of harassment. Congratulations Juana and thank you for your leadership!
