The BGG Podcast - Looking Forward: Immigration and DACA


Host A’shanti Gholar speaks to Cecillia Wang, Deputy Legal Director at the ACLU and Director of the Center for Democracy, and Astrid Silva, co-founder of Dream Big Nevada and Organizing Director at the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada. They discuss the current status of the DACA program in the US and what the future might look like for DREAMers under the Biden-Harris administration.


In the BGG to Politics blog, A’shanti created a space for women of color to learn about the current state of women in politics, to support others breaking into the political sphere, and to celebrate incredible people changing the course of the country. A’shanti founded the blog in 2018 and teamed up with Wonder Media Network in 2019 to extend The BGG platform to audio.


The Brown Girls Guide to Politics is produced by Cinthia Pimentel.
