National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum
In 2011, Mari Rose Taruc was profiled by the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum. Profiles were "selected from a national pool of fierce sisters working across the country. They're multi-issue, multi-faceted, multi-ethnic movers and shakers. They're artists, activists, moms, attorneys, organizers, students. Together, we'll redefine women leadership and lift up the progressive movement for APA women and girls."
