New World, New Rules: A Latina Ambassador's View on Democracy, the USA and Women's Political Power

July 26, 2021

The current state of Democracy and the challenges facing our interconnected and inter-dependent countries and continents look quite different from outside the United States. Roberta LaJous, a seasoned diplomat who has been the Mexican Ambassador to Spain, Cuba, Austria and Bolivia, as well as serving at the UN, shares what she perceives as the greatest threat to democracy today, how the world views the USA in light of the citizens' attack on the Capitol, and how women in Mexico are dramatically increasing their political power. 




Race Relations in 2021 America

July 21, 2021

Confederate statues are coming down, Juneteenth is now a federal holiday, and a 14-year-old girl makes history as the first African American to win the National Spelling Bee. Yet, voting restrictions are being tightened, tempers are flaring over the teaching of Critical Race theory and atrocities continue.  What's the state of U.S. race relations? Detroit Champion of Justice award winner Shirley Stancato, an expert on race relations and long-time advocate for building relationships across differences, shares her perspective and ways each of us can be social justice allies. 



Anti-Asian American Racism and Violence

July 6, 2021

Bias, discrimination and racism against Asian Americans have increased dramatically. Over 3,800 incidents of hate-related incidents have been reported during the COVID pandemic, including a vicious attack in NY''s Times Square against a 65-year-old Filipino woman on her way to church. Joining us to talk about the depth of the problem are Liz Kari, daughter of the woman whose hate crime was witnessed by millions on social media, and founder of AAP I Belong.  Also, Thear Sy Suzuki, a child survivor of Cambodian genocide who has risen to become a respected Dallas leader and featured in former President George W. Bush's new book, OUT OF MANY, ONE: Portraits of America's Immigrants. Both advocate for fewer bystanders and more Upstanders against all racism.
