Ep. 02: Vietnamese Anti-Deportation w/ Phi Nguyen, Litigation Director for Advancing Justice ATL

In this interview with Phi Nguyen, we discuss her path into law, intensified efforts by ICE to target, detain, and deport the Vietnamese community, how the U.S. is violating the Repatriation Agreement through unlawful detention of pre-1995 Vietnamese immigrants, the "closed door" nature of government negotiations, a punitive immigration system, and Phi's experiences working with detained people.

Ep. 01: The "Myth" and southeast asian resilience, healing, & organizing

Episode 01 is an audio montage stitching together the voices of my guests, Chhaya Chhoum, Sina Sam, and Tracy Nguyen. I asked them to respond to one question, "What are the critical issues impacting the Southeast Asian community today, and how are you organizing for it?" 

In this episode, my guests touch upon: deportation, disparity, lack of disaggregated data, crimmigration, school to prison to deportation pipeline, organizing as healing, and centering the most impacted to build community power.
