Hateful rhetoric is creating a dangerous climate for immigrants and refugees in America. Eli Cuna has experienced the harmful effects of this rhetoric first hand. That is why she fights for immigrant rights as National Field Director for the largest immigrant, youth-led network in the country. United We Dream is equal parts aspirational message, call to action, and social justice advocacy with a membership surpassing 400,000.
In this episode, we dive deep into the topic of immigration—from an immigrant’s perspective. We discuss the propaganda around the president’s border wall, DACA, ICE raids, mass deportation and how identity plays a key role in creating safe spaces for immigrants.
