The Currently Podcast Episode 5: You Oughta Know
This week we dive into the emotional labor of being immigrants/first generation Americans, and working in spaces where our culture isn't understood, or valued. In this candid chat, my guest Monica Perez, political realist and border town native goes in on how ended up here as a community and gives her perspective about the "wall," and the Dreamers we don't see on t.v. We get pretty heated when we talk about our frustration with educating people about the humanity of immigrants. Get ready for an animated conversation! Plus, I share what i'm reading and share a movie suggestion.
In this episode you will learn:
-Why it can be challenging to be a person of color in the workplace
-Why you should challenge authority
-What life is like for people on the border
