What does this have to do with immigrant rights? EVERYTHING.
We all know that mainstream media has overlooked the critical stories coming out of hte immigrant rights movement AND from the broader social justice movement. We get to hear thousands of stories (oft repeated) about the 60’s and 70’s- whihc is great- but we need a new voice of inspiration for our OWN times. Stories from our social justice movements inspire, bring us energy, and they encourage others to join our fight, which is why it is crucial that we have a STRONGER voice for our interest in the larger media.
I’d like to point you to one contestant in particular who promises to bring a fresh and passionate voice to the airwaves- Will Coley. Will has been doing amazing advocacy around detention, immigration and labor rights on three different continents and he continues to carry the torch high for our fight.
