After 20 years of working in Asia, and growing up in South America, I’ve spent my life living in several countries around the world, getting to know people of different cultures, speaking different languages, and learning to appreciate different ways of living this human life. This podcast is a celebration of differences, and a space to discuss how in learning about our differences we discover how we all can benefit from simply listening to and learning from each other. Join us on a deep dive into conversations about how our differences can help us all make a world of difference.

    Immigration EPS 10: Gracia Berrios on DACA, legal representation, Peru, the commandments, and voting

    Gracia Berrios works for One Justice in San Francisco to help DACA immigrants to find legal help with their immigration process. She immigrated to the US from Peru as a baby with her family, and went through the grueling years of legal immigration, watching her family walk through the emotionally and financially taxing process. She now wants to help those who need the resources to make legal immigration work, despite the almost weekly setbacks that the current administration’s changes make increasingly difficult. Listen as she talks about what went right in her own journey of immigration, and what she hopes gets repeated. Stay In Touch:
