A Knoxville activist is featured on the October cover of Mujeres Con Vision, a latinx publication for women “sin excusas.”
Emilia Romero, a social work student at the University of Tennessee, has an impressive resume at just 19 years old. In high school she acted as a peer sex educator with Planned Parenthood and continues to work with them today. Romero also aids the homeless population in Knoxville and works with Healthy and Free Tennessee where she helps end the stigma around abortion.
Romero’s strong leadership roles show her focus and care for necessary issues. In the interview with Mujeres Con Vision, she details her passion for realistic sexual education in the south and her work towards making resources available for the unfortunate.
As a Knoxville native who has experienced abstinence-based sexual education and seen how horribly our city treats homeless people, I am inspired by the work Romero does every day. She has a vision and it is clear. I can’t wait to see what she does next.
