​In this inaugural episode, we chat with LA-based organizer Yessica Gonzalez of Immigrant Youth Coalition, and Chicago-based organizer Hannah Baptiste of Assata’s Daughters.

From police abolition to dismantling ICE, we dive deep into conversations around shared visions of liberation, Black & Brown solidarity across the work, and how funders can do better at respecting organizers' time and labor.​

Both Assata's Daughters and Immigrant Youth Coalition receive multi-year support through Third Wave's Grow Power Fund and have also been grantees of the Mobilize Power Fund for urgent activist and organizing needs in their communities.
