Your Call: Comedy, a force for immigrant rights
On the April 20th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about using humor to champion immigrant rights. Presidential candidates are maligning immigrants in their race to the top. A Washington Post-ABC News poll found that half of Republican voters support deporting all undocumented immigrants. Faced with increased racism, the International Institute of the Bay Area, an organization that helps Bay Area immigrants and their families, is hosting a comedy night for immigrant rights. How can comedy challenge xenophobia? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
