Chicanas: Nurturers and Warriors 

Film: “Chicanas: Nurturers and Warriors,” an #IAmDenver documentary film produced by the Denver Office of Storytelling, explores what it means to be Chicana. Featuring some remarkable women who have made transformative political, social, and cultural contributions to Denver, the film chronicles what it is to be a woman born in this country, with strong Mexican and Indigenous roots and a life dedicated to social justice. This sweeping history spans centuries and is told like never before, with personal stories of triumph that are guaranteed to inspire and empower. Translation and interpretation are available on request. 


Q&A with filmmaker Rowena Alegría and State Historian Nicki Gonzales to follow the film.
