Angeline Echeverria of El Pueblo, Inc. in North Carolina and Deon Haywood of Women With A Vision in Louisiana will be recognized for their work igniting changes in their communities to ensure equity and opportunity for all women. Additionally, youth activists Charlotte Iradukunda, Jessica Hernandez, and Layla Bagwell of the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence will receive the Peggy C.
