THIS SHOW IS SO IMPORTANT! We’re joined by Sheena Barnes and Veralucía Mendoza Arana today to discuss the right and wrong ways to be an ally. We did have a bit of a signal issue with Zoom, so some of the interview may sound a little static-y. We chose not to cut any of it because every word was so important.
