We discuss race, identity, social justice and culture in a region grappling with demographic changes
We’ve known that oppression is alive and real in America, but it seems “woke” white people are just discovering it. It’s important to acknowledge the intersectionality of oppression through our communities. What does authentic solidarity looks like and what does it require from each of us to stand together that is transformative. Guest: Sindy Morales Garcia, co-founder of Courageous Change Collective
Hub & Spoke Pt. 2
Six years ago, Mankwe Ndosi joined us to talk about Hub and Spoke - the concept that communities of color (the spoke) are constantly living in relation to the dominant white culture (the hub). Today we pick up where we left off focusing on solidarity between our communities.

Solidarity in Sisterhood
The murder of six Asian women in Georgia, on top of three murder-suicides, on top of vicious attacks on Asian elders, on top of a global pandemic is exhausting. On this week’s special episode of Counter Stories, four Asian women talk about healing and moving forward. Guests: Jennifer Nguyen-Moore, Linda Her, Megan Boyle
The Importance of Jury Duty
The crew is joined by the Juror Project founder Will Snowden to talk about the jury selection process and how it has historically disenfranchised communities of color. Guest: Will Snowden, founder of The Juror Project
Accessing the Vaccine
We’re a few months into the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. But who’s getting them? And does the distrust of the American healthcare system in our communities prevent us from getting vaccinated? Communities of color have a long history of being mistreated, experimented upon, and ignored by healthcare professionals. Now with more vaccines becoming available, how can we educate our communities on the benefits of and where to get access to vaccines? The crew is joined by Reuben Moore, President and Executive Officer of Minnesota Community Care.

Very important conversations
The voices and topics on this show are vital contributions to current events conversations today, from people who are often sidelined. Having a token white guy makes for a really interesting and reflective dynamic too.
