I have SOMETHING to say!

Welcome to “I have SOMETHING to say,” where subject matter experts are unafraid and unapologetic about sharing their perspectives regarding issues that impact our lives. They speak up because they give a shit. If you’re tired of canned answers and want to FINALLY hear real people cut through the B.S. and talk about real issues, this podcast is for you.

Mar 23, 2021

This week our podcast is two days early. There’s a sense of urgency. In this episode of I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY, my dear friend, sister and comrade Thali Sugisawa revisits what she felt when she heard about the violent and tragic attack against Asian women in Atlanta last week. She shares very disturbing and poignant experiences growing up in her native Brazil as the daughter of a biracial parents, and living here in the U.S. Listen as she shares cultural insights and how she candidly expresses her frustrations, concerns, hope, and determination to do what she can to make things better. Please listen to her truth and the simple solution she presents: “We just need to care more about others.”
