Episode Ten of Our Podcast “180 Days” — Election Edition! — is Available Now

 

This week’s edition of the America’s Voice podcast, “180 Days,” is now available. The weekly podcast will run over the next six months as we approach the March 6, 2018 deadline for DACA. We cover the fight to protect Dreamers and pass the Dream Act – and other immigration news.

This week’s episode was a special, elections-themed podcast that featured guest Julio Lainez, the state director of America’s Voice Virginia. Democrats, immigrants, and allies won big this week in Virginia, electing a slate of progressive new candidates who reflect the diversity of America while defeating Republicans who campaigned on ugly anti-immigrant politics. We also discussed the Dreamer day of action — Operation #DreamActNow — that took place across 14 states today and featured 8,000 Dreamers and advocates calling on Congress to take action on legislation.

Listen to episode 10 of our podcast below, and tune in next Friday for more!
