Latinas on Being Political and Researching Ourselves!
In today’s episode, we have Maricruz Osorio, a PhD student in the Department of Political Science at UC Riverside! Maricruz is a McNair Fellow, APSA (American Political Science Association Fellow), and recipient of a Latino Fund Grant. Maricruz’ research asks why do some  immigrants, and women in particular, with different statuses (DACA, undocumented, asylum seekers, and refugees) engage in risky political behavior. And by risky, or the uncertainty of the outcome, there doesn’t appear to have the same repercussions across different citizenship statuses. In this episode, we talk about women in political science, community support amongst scholars, and books that have saved our lives.

Dear Latinas: To be in solidarity with BLM means..
In today's episode I talk about the need for non-Black Latinas to educate themselves in how to become aware on the anti-Blackness our community perpetuates. With the rise of the nation-wide protests around the country due to the murder of Ahmaud Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, we as allies have to do our part to educate our community, share our platforms in solidarity, and support Black women in the fight for justice.
