In brief: The ICE raids this week make my interview with Tina Vasquez, the immigration reporter for Rewire, particularly important and timely. A lot of folks are waking up to what’s been going on for more than a decade with increased deportations and detentions — aka imprisonments. She’ll put some of it in perspective and movingly conveys how families with mixed documentation status are at particular risk. My second guest, Avital Norman Nathman, is one of my best friends and has a pretty badass new collaboration project for people looking to up their engagement level in this time of heightened awareness and oppression: TakeActionTakeCare.com.
