Ep. 62: Women's March 2018

2017 was a year of many struggles for people of color, specifically women, and our political climate in the U.S. has only gotten more tense in 2018. That is why we came together, this time in NYC, to join thousands of women and men for the Women's March. We got the opportunity to interview young women, elders, gay couples with children and even husband's supporting their wives. The crowd was diverse and passionate about equality and definitely anti-Trump.

The end of the year had us reflecting on 2017's highs and lows. We both purged, started to break bad habits, and had thoughtful conversations with ourselves about our past traumas all for the sake of being even better selves for 2018. We even spend some time talking about toxic love in romantic relationships, how it affects self-love and saying goodbye to ex-boyfriends once and for all.

Ep. 57: Meet One Latina Giving a Voice to America's Struggling Renters

We talk to one Latina who is working on changing policies to help with housing affordability and homelessness. Ali Solis is President and CEO of Make Room Inc., a national advocacy nonprofit organization giving voice to America’s struggling renters. She works closely with the White House, U.S. Congress, state and local policy leaders and industry stakeholders — not to mention she works closely with families who often have to do trade-offs (clothes, transportation, etc.) in order to afford their rent. About 9 million children live in households that struggle with this problem. Latinos are affected in particular because they make up most of the renter population. This issue hits home for Solis because her family is from Puerto Rico and she seen first hand how lack of housing efforts’ support and resources there can affect people.

Check out how to get involved with Ali Solis on MakeRoomUSA.org to see how you can help support her in a legislation that commemorates September as the National Month for Renters bringing awareness to an often underreported issue.

Ep. 55: Brujas of Brooklyn on Honoring Your Womb, Spiritual Health Realignment, & Their Dominican Mother

The Brujas of Brooklyn, Afro-Latina identical twins Gricelda and Miguelina, open up about their spiritual journey led by their Dominican mother. Led by academia but still using the spiritual tools they grew up with, they’ve organized a tight collective of women of color in their community to empower, protect and educate in hopes of going beyond limitations they were exposed to while growing up. Miguelina also goes into detail about the health scare and traumatic breakup that ignited her spiritual healing and Gricelda talks about what inspired her to become a doula. 

We also go to see these practical magic makers before their pink tent event which retroactively honors the moment when women got their period because in our culture there is a lot of shame tied to it. Their expertise in womb-healing will inspire you to honor about this pivotal moment in your life. Tap and own your womb-power, brujas.
