Meet the Radical Monarchs, a group founded by two queer women of color (Anayvette Martinez and Marilyn Hollinquest) to empower young girls of color through community organization, representation, advocacy work, and social justice. Set in Oakland, this award-winning documentary follows the journey of the group as they earn badges for completing units including LGBTQ allyship, environmental preservation, and disability justice.
