Her Resilience, the arts organization featured in Not Throw Away Women is an art-based, women-centered project intended to honor, commemorate and celebrate the lives of women affected by violence in the Oakland community.

The project was created by Hazel Streete in honor of Kimberly Robertson, a young Black woman who was raped and murdered in Oakland last spring.

Participating artists include Kira Marriner, Melody Shaiken, Nicole Gervacio, Magick Monica, Joanne Ludwig, Summer April Lelia, Shana La Reina, Kate Klingbeil, Adee Roberson & Ximena Soza (collaboration), Kindah Khalidy and Angelica Padmavati.

Here are some photos from the project and listen to the radio segment above.
