Episode #7 begins our focus on the Asian-American diaspora with our very first podcast interview!

Thu Quach of Asian Health Services & co-founder of the Progressive Vietnamese American Organization (PIVOT). Thu's amazing journey has inspired many - from advocating for immigrants during the Trump Administration, to caring for the community during the COVID pandemic. Her work continues with AHS, PIVOT, and One Nation AAPI - and she's just getting started!

We will have a second podcast within a week's time to discuss the tragic events of March 16th, and the coverage of the rising violence against Asian-Americans in the media.
