On today’s A Public Affair, guest host Bert Zipperer takes a moment to reflect on Madison – to dive into the similarities and uniquenesses of our struggles, challenges and opportunities in dismantling racism, colonized thinking, and other forms of state and social violence impacting our everyday lives. Who do we need to be for each other and what do we need to do to co-liberate each other from so much unnecessary suffering?
Today’s guest is bridge builder and border crosser Geraldine Paredes Vasquez, who worked in the public schools as a Bilingual Resource Specialist until last year. She is working at the YWCA as an Intercultural & Social Justice Educator, and is now the Racial Justice Programs Coordinator. She is moving on to work as a coordinator with the United World College in Costa Rica, a social justice international high school.
