Name: Lori Penor
Member Since: January 2012
What Lori has done as a GABRIELA member:
- “One Billion Rising” flash mob at Seafood City
- Created “Reverse Money Dance” with Diwang Pin@y Crew
- Marched with Gabriela Philippines on Women’s Day
- Brushed up my Tagalog and Ilokano
Reason for Joining: The Halong Report Back, Nov. 2011, got me hooked and I can’t think of a more meaningful way to spend my time.
Expo Trip Dates: March 2014 with baby in tow
Things she’s good at: snail mail, puzzles, counseling victims of violence and other things that don’t require a lot of technology.
Why this work is meaningful to Lori: Being in this movement has really opened by eyes to ways people and community make change. It challenges me to think more critically at the world I was given and one that I want to give my son.
When she’s not working for the movement, where can we find Lori / what can we find Lori doing? Learning new words in different languages at Refugee Women’s Alliance, and cycling with Mateo.
