On September 26th, host David Bell brings part 6 of his Trauma Series when he speaks with Komal Kaur, Founder of Eye of an Immigrant.
Immigration can give substantial economic benefits – a more flexible labor market, greater skills base, increased demand and greater diversity.
David and Komal will talk about her non-profit website https://www.eyeofanimmigrant.org/ that allows immigrants to use the power of storytelling to overcome cultural barriers and the trauma these barriers create.
We’ll play the calendar at the midpoint of our hour.
We bring you vital information underserved or ignored by mainstream media. We pride ourselves on digging in and sharing the issues that entertain and inform our listeners by providing a curated, unique and independent voice.
On Jaws of Justice, we examine how to find justice in our society. Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
