Rosa Angela Velázquez on Immigration MIC!

Rosa Angela Velázquez on Immigration MIC!

From testifying in front of Congress to The @HendelMedia Project, Rosa shares her journey with me, for only the sixth time ever! This is an interview you cannot miss! In this fun, yet emotionally charged interview, Rosa speaks on her family's heartbreaking sacrifices, the moment she saw her dreams crumbling in her prospective college's financial aid office, the origins of President Obama's legislation and her being a part of the team that saw it implemented, all the way to shouting down Steve King last week in DC! We then talk about the direction of DAPA, the controversial "Low Profile/ High Profile Dreamers" pages, (we acknowledge there is real frustration behind those posts), and honest and challenging conversation about the lack of mental health resources, and Rosa's ongoing mission to continue training more people to do organizing work and continue empowering communities. PS: According to Rosa, not a good idea to target Supreme Court Justices with actions. She says this may be her favorite interview ever, an INCREDIBLE compliment -- Rosa, it was my honor to host you, and one day I hope we can meet for some strawberry shortcake ice cream and to work together to accomplish some trailblazing work! I admire your passion, your resolve, and your huge heart! We are FAMILY now!
