Otanez and colleagues secure Ford funding and reach out to local teen moms

Colleagues in the Latino Research and Policy Center including CLAS’s Marty Otañez, assistant professor of anthropology, and Evelinn A. Borrayo, professor of psychology, received a 2-year, $500,000 award from the Ford Foundation to promote, 'Social Media for Sexual and Reproductive Rights, Access, and Justice.’ As part of the grant, over the summer Otañez and undergraduate and graduate CU Denver students completed one of three digital storytelling workshops with Latina pregnant and parenting teens to be conducted at Denver’s Florence Crittenton High School. Themes covered included the stigma associated with being a teen mom and health and reproductive rights and justice. 

In addition, Otañez presented at the UK National Smoking Cessation Conference in June, and was quoted last month in a press release put out by the International Labor Rights Forum on global trade and Bangladesh.
