Click above to listen to Episode 8 of "The Witness," our podcast of firsthand stories from attorneys and advocates who are on the front lines of fighting for people living in poverty.
This episode is the second in our miniseries about the Shriver Center’s own Racial Justice Institute. Over the past five years, the Racial Justice Institute has equipped more than 200 fellows from around the country to practice community-led advocacy in pursuit of racial justice. These episodes were recorded at the inaugural convening of Racial Justice Institute fellows in Chicago in June 2018.
This episode is part one of a conversation between Alicia White, Social Work Program Director in the Criminal Practice at Brooklyn Defender Services, and Sheila Miller, Supervising Paralegal at the National Immigration Law Center in Los Angeles. Part one features Sheila Miller.
We once were those children that are growing up today, and what I see is power, and I'm not fearful. I'm optimistic, really, but cautiously, because of the power that you're fighting against. And I just hope that I am around long enough to witness it. I say, 'Welcome, future.' I really do.
