Ferrera has become an important political activist, fighting for the right of women, Latinx people, and immigrants, making her anthology timely. A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the nonprofit Immigrants: We Get The Job Done Coalition, which provides legal support to immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
