About Amplify Womxn of UCI

The Amplify series was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. Erica Turley-De Villa and Tanya Zabalegui, two of our board members for A&PW envisioned a form of storytelling that would provide a space for womxn of UCI to be heard. As Erica and Tanya began sharing their idea with individuals across campus, the support was immediate and generous. There are well over 15+ departments throughout campus that are either collaborating, supporting, or consulting on this initiative, and we are so grateful.
