Alexandra-Marie Figueroa Miranda is a communicator, activist, and law student. She is currently the Communications Director and the creator of an Organizational Communication's Growth Strategy for Taller Salud in Loiza, Puerto Rico. She is also one of the co-creators and leaders of La Clara, a grassroots digital medium with a mission of making civic knowledge accessible to young peoples across Puerto Rico. Alexandra-Marie is a militant feminist and organizer, focused on women’s rights, rights of self-determination, and civil and human rights.
In this episode, we discuss Taller Salud’s work in addressing gender violence and community health, and in supporting holistic approaches to reproductive health. We also talk about conceptualisations of feminist approaches to health, abortion rights in the current political climate, and how the lack of reproductive autonomy in Puerto Rico is implicated by diverse broader questions relating to transport and education, and is shaped by colonialism.
