1 hr 38 min

In this special three in one episode of @immigrationmicpodcast hear great conversations with @ashotoftruthpodcast, Lorena Quiroz-Lewis, and @firstgenmoney! 

 

A Shot of Truth Podcast is hosted by Victoria Matey who is an “undocumented queer womxn of color”, who began her podcast with the mission of providing “a platform for us undocumented people to share our experiences, ideas, concerns and whatever we want. Millions of people carry this identity and we all have different complex lives. It's time to pick up the mic and tell our story our way” -- we have a very fun and thought provoking conversation as both activists and podcast hosts/ producers. 

 

Next, Lorena Quiroz-Lewis, Lead Organizer/ Coordinator Mississippi Immigrant Coalition calls in as Mississippi is undergoing historic weather conditions, and talks about the developments on the ground since last summer’s workplace immigration raids, and the impact on the local community. She provides a detailed account of the efforts that went into responding to the raids, and talks about the infrastructure that is trying to be built to address the longstanding effects. 

 

As a bonus, we spotlight Danielle Romoleroux, creator of FirstGenMoney, and she shares her motivation for being invested in the immigration conversation, and talks about her parents’ stories in immigration from Ecuador, to eventually becoming citizens, and how it ties into her motivation in promoting financial health.
