Welcome to the third episode of Season 7 of The Brown Girls Guide to Politics Podcast!
Host A’shanti Gholar speaks to Congresswoman Grace Meng and Georgia State Representative Bee Nguyen. They’re diving into how the Asian community has been affected by COVID-- from a rise in racism and hate crimes to dismantling the model minority myth. We’re also sharing a clip of an anti-bias training from Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) and Hollaback!-- a free resource you can access in our show notes.
AAJC and Hollaback! are offering free, remote, anti-bias training seminars. Sign up at https://advancingjustice-aajc.org/events
The Brown Girls Guide to Politics Podcast is all about amplifying the voices of women who are too often forgotten in media coverage. Host A’shanti Gholar leads conversations with women changing the face of politics. In the BGG to Politics blog, A’shanti created a space for women of color to learn about the current state of politics, to support others breaking into the political sphere, and to celebrate incredible women changing the course of the country. A’shanti founded the blog in 2018 and Wonder Media Network is thrilled to extend her platform to audio.
The Brown Girls Guide to Politics is produced by Wonder Media Network.
