Common Sense Hosted by Kayse Jama and Grassia Melendez
Join the conversation in a new Talk Radio Show, Common Sense, aimed towards presenting the Immigrant and Refugee Perspective on issues that are under-represented in our Mainstream Media. Today's guests are Baher Butti and Murad Nuryagdiev from the Center for Intercultural Organizing. They talk about immigrant and refugee issues in Portland, and how The Center for Intercultural Organizing supports diversification.
Today's guest is local activist Lucilene Lira, also from the Center for Intercultural Organizing, and they talk about the problems and experiences immigrants often have when organizing for solidarity and social change.
Today's topic is our educational system, and how it does (or does not) relate to the Immigrant and Refugee Community. We'll hear three Portland Public School teachers with years of experience in English as a Second Language programs talk about their experiences, both with the school system and with their students.
