This year, she was recently promoted as the Program Director for the Gender & Sexuality Coalition. She is passionate in pursuing her studies and wants to make sure she brings the value of intersexuality to others who are barely exposed to the term.
In her powerful video, Briana returns to her community in San Francisco, CA to discuss what justice means and explains how to better promote the well-being of society to validate intersectional to advocate for justice. Ms. Guerrero-Vega “first thought the scholarship was a unique topic; justice, a conversation that most scholarships do not ask. I was not only inspired to show my background but showing how someone from an urban community can thrive”.
Here is Briana Guerrero-Vega’s award-winning video:
We admire Briana’s time and dedication for her video and her commitment to educating her community. She met and surpassed the criteria and demonstrated the qualities we look for in our scholarship program. We hope that Briana’s video and the others posted via YouTube will inspire and encourage young audiences nationwide to advance the cause of social justice in their communities. At Dolan Law Firm, we share the same values and beliefs that justice is for all.
