Juju Angeles, 2009
Occupying Ohlone Territory (Oakland, CA), Juju is mothering, homeschooling, working with plants, and supporting people through their pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum journey. She graduated with a degree and a lot of debt from a Creative Writing program and facilitated spaces encouraging “marginalized” communities to tell their own stories. As an AfroTaino person, they are reclaiming and remembering their traditional practice as a form of decolonization. In 2014, they started Babymamahood, an online platform to dismantle, reimagine, and reclaim solo parenting for women and people of color in the hood.
