Interview with Strong Families Work Group Co-Chairs

2014-09-23 17.16.28

Marilou Carrera and Kara Carmosino are the Strong Families work group co-chairs and they have been leading the group at APANO for the past year. They have been instrumental in facilitating and creating the space at APANO to integrate a gender justice and reproductive justice lens to the organization. As a newer group within APANO's committees, they have spent the past year organizing the API community through educational workshops, policy advocacy, and participating in the We Are BRAVE coalition (Building Reproductive Autonomy and Voices for Equity) on behalf of APANO.

This year, the Dis/orient/ed Comedy show will be recognizing the Strong Families work group and the work that APANO is invested in within the reproductive justice movement. Listen to this interview of Marilou and Kara as they talk about the work group, their experiences as co-chairs, and what they hope to work towards in the near future.

The Strong Families work group will be launching a website in December, to highlight the story collection project they are currently working on. To receive notification about when the site will launch please fill out the sign up form here.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
