    Life Before and After Naturalization

    Join co-hosts Carlos Alberto and Karina Dominguez as they talk with Brianna Vazquez, an immigrant mother from Mexico City who grew up in a time before DACA. Brianna emphasizes that the ideas of navigating family, chasing culture, and growing up undocumented have lasting effects long after one naturalizes. Brianna is proud of all the fearless undocu folks living their dreams in ways she could have never imagined as a kid. Now she is just trying to be a good community member and a mom to her 17 year old child. She has been in her career for 12 years and in her free time enjoys reading, napping, eating, lifting, running, watching unserious tv, and fighting to destroy white supremacy and any expectations that hold us back from being who we truly are.

ohthatsbrian ,

fantastic pod from a Hispanic perspective

I’ve listened to all 5 episodes so far. The hosts, Danny and Carlos, do a great job of presenting issues intelligently. They help me, as a caucasian, to have a better understanding of how DACA and other legal issues affect them on a daily basis.
