Rebuilding Palu: Women Take Charge

Happy International Women’s Day—from Palu, Indonesia, where women are demanding their rights and taking action. It’s been two years since the 2018 earthquake and tsunami that devastated this seaside community, but thousands of people still live in temporary shelters with limited food, water and electricity. Activist Sri Haris is protesting the government’s slow delivery of aid and support. The organization she works with, Sulteng Bergerak, has built a movement of women who have organized more than 50 protests with support from AJWS. On this International Women’s Day, Sri wants the world to know that women are strong and work together to persevere and overcome every obstacle.
