In June at the Fresno Pride Festival I had the opportunity to meet some very interesting people, among those people were members of the Fresno Chapter of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Recently I got the chance to chat with Teresa Castillo, who is the Chair of the Fresno branch, about the tremendous amount of incredible things this group does!
