    Expressing Post-Traumatic Emotions Through The Arts: A Conversation With Stoneman Douglas HS Student Andrea Peña

    Expressing Post-Traumatic Emotions Through The Arts: A Conversation With Stoneman Douglas HS Student Andrea Peña

    This week, the Democrats Abroad Hispanic Caucus spoke with Andrea Peña, a musician, volunteer, community activist, and an incredible 17-year-old student at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

    In catching up with Miss Peña, we learned about how she coped with the aftermath from the tragic February 14, 2018 mass shooting at her school; her involvement nowadays with an extraordinary non-profit organization (https://shinemsd.org/) which helps heal victims of traumatic events through use of the arts; why Camp Shine locations should be spread throughout the U.S.; why Hollywood and Broadway need to tone down visual depictions of gun violence; and the back-story to the amazing song “Shine” she co-wrote with her classmate Sawyer Garrity in response to that dark day in 2018.

    This young lady and millions of other outstanding youths make us optimistic for the future. They’re primed to register to vote for the first time and we have full confidence in our nation’s next generation of leaders doing the right thing when it comes to creating the positive political change we want to see in laws. If you ever needed a nudge to vote, listen to this episode and we’re sure you’ll agree that America needs more Andrea Peñas – not all heroes wear capes!

    The Powerful Voice Of A DREAMer

    The Powerful Voice Of A DREAMer

    "I am an American in every way... except for documentation."

    If you couldn't vote, how involved would you get in politics? In Sarah Souza's case, the answer is VERY involved. Souza arrived in the country at the age of 15, went to college as a DREAMer, and grew into a community activist and U.S. public policy expert. The first DACA recipient on the San Francisco County Democratic Central Committee joined us to talk about life in a sanctuary city, how the Democratic party supports Latinx candidates for office, and why motivated leaders like her are #HereToStay.

    "My main message to Democrats Abroad is to go out and vote." -- Bill Richardson

    "My main message to Democrats Abroad is to go out and vote." -- Bill Richardson

    Governor Bill Richardson, a childhood role model of DA member and podcast host Sam Stone and so many other Americans, joined us to talk about the opportunities third culture kids have, his work with the Inter-American Dialogue, how important it is for politicians to remember we're a community of nations, and the importance of exercising the right to vote. We discussed our relationships with our nearest and largest trading partners in the Americas as well as sanctions in North Korea and the Rule of Law as it applies in the US and around the world. With strong stances on climate change "It was wrong to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, it’ll adversely affect humanity" and with compassion for the most vulnerable nations on our planet, this podcast is a must-listen for all members of the Hispanic Caucus and Democrats Abroad. This episode of the Democrats Abroad Hispanic Caucus was cohosted by Amerika Garcia Grewal in Fiji and Sam Stone in Mexico, with special thanks to Madeleine Mahony of Gov. Richardson’s staff.

    2020 is just around the corner and all Americans living outside the US should request their absentee ballot every year. Please mark your calendar or go to PledgetoReg.org to pledge to register to vote and request your ballot.
