Texas Outrage

In this episode, we are joined by Carlos Sotelo, Erika Rocha, and Giovanni Escobedo, all immigrant and undocumented folks residing in Texas. This episode highlights the impact and organizing efforts of communities in Houston, Austin, and The Rio Grande Valley. We talk about the difference in support based on geographical location. The need to make mutual aid accessible to people who speak a different language, those who do not have access to a car or computer to apply. The need for ground communal organizing is how many communities in Texas have survived. I also ask what is happening near the border and at detention centers. Below are our show notes, you can check out various places to donate that help low-income, BIPOC immigrant communities.
