Welcome back to Sounds of Resistance: voices from the streets! Jessica Melendez is a tireless advocate for immigration rights, community building, and making our world a better place. Today, Jessica joined us by phone to share her thoughts on some of the ins and outs of immigration in Louisville, the overall landscape of immigration into the U.S., and family.

It was a pleasure having Jessica join us today. She reminds us (at least our host) that perspective & details make a difference when dealing with complex issues such as immigration policy. Jessica shares a little about how she came into this work, what her vision would be for immigration reform that works, and her favorite food. You don’t want to miss what she has to say!

Listen in, leave your comments below, and go out & make a difference!

Many thanks to Jessica, SCZ & J, WFMP 106.5fm, and all of the people that make this possible! You’re listening to Sounds of Resistance: voices from the streets!
