Hello dear listeners, we hope you are having a restful and revolutionary summer! We are coming to you with some exciting news. While we're taking a little summer hiatus before the next season starts in the fall, we will be re-releasing some of our favorite episodes from the last season. You’ll be hearing from Envision Freedom Fund staff over the next few weeks as they reintroduce these episodes to you and we hope you will listen, listen again and share with a friend! And at the end of the summer, we’ll be back with a brand new season of conversations about how we envision and bring to fruition freedom for all people.
On this episode of Dismantling Injustice, Envision Freedom's communication manager, Julie Mente, steps in for Carl to continue unraveling the mystery of government budgets. Julie is joined by Gabriela Viera, senior advocacy manager at Detention Watch Network. They discuss the federal appropriation process – including Biden's proposed budget for the next fiscal year – and how they impact the rights and dignity of immigrants in the U.S.— Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/dismantlinginjustice/support
