On April, 2019 — Michelle re-emerged with what is UPRISERS today. This photo of the Gidra Sisterhood sparked something that gave her the courage to “rise up” again. They were activists in the 60’s and are now known as the “Voice of the Asian American Movement”. They were the face of opposition towards a society that oppressed them.
