He leads BANF along with a seven-member Steering Committee and a nine-member Accountability and Advisory Council made up of a diverse group of artists, curators, scholars, organizational leaders, and foundation partners, who guide goals and priorities. Mr. Wagan in addition to discussing the tribulations of BIPOCs artists wanted to introduce the audience to fund offering grants to BIPOC artists in Houston. Here is the following from his site where one can apply for the grants. The co-founder and national coordinator of RootsAction.org recently, Norman Solomon, published the article “Stop Calling the Military Budget a ‘Defense' Budget” that everyone must read as soon as possible. He wrote the following. Solomon expanded on the article in our interview as he tied this pilfering with our socio-economic state. It is an important note that puts our national spending into perspective. --- If you like what we do please do the following!

Do you understand concepts like code-switching and why the BIPOC community sees the need to do so?

Tamarindo is taking a week off to recharge our pilas. So we invite you to revisit this episode to help you uncover your energy chupacabras and ways to reduce stress. This first aired fall 2019, so you'll hear us talk about the Democratic debates...ah...remember when the only pandemic we had to worry about was Tr*mp? We learn why stress is not ALL bad but why it's also more harmful than we think. We recognize that many of the stressors BIPOC folks face, like financial stress or discrimination, are not ones we can easily change without policy changes. That said, there are a few things we can do to start changing our relationship with stress like changing our mindset and discovering our #energychupacabras and what to do about them. We include a technique used by the stress management company @Baskandbeing You can learn more about them here https://baskandbeing.com/ Looking for Your Next Career Challenge?

Kristal Babich is a Chilean-American story artist and WIA mentor who has worked on a variety of projects. Grab some tips on the differences between boarding for stop motion, CG feature films, and even how that all differs from a comics pipeline. Even before that, Kristal nearly finished her degree for Biology Education, and learn about her decision to pivot her career trajectory. If you're in a similar position, know that it's never too late to learn something new! Kristal's perspective as a Latinx person growing up in Florida is greatly different than a Latinx-American from California. Even though we group people by continent (ie. South America, Asia, etc), the countries within them have largely different cultures. Just something to keep in mind as we become aware of how diverse our world is.

Tom O'Keefe is a social impact entrepreneur, and the founder of Stride for Stride, Heart to Cart, and Bostontweet. Stride for Stride is a non-profit running organization that buys race bibs for immigrant, BIPOC, and low-income runners. Their goal is to make races more accessible and more diverse. Tom started Stride for Stride in 2018 after struggling to pay for race bibs and observing that most races lacked diversity - his assumption was that this was due, in part, to the high cost of entry. Since 2018, Stride for Stride has grown to over 60 avid runners from over a dozen countries. They compete in everything from marathons to 5Ks, and even a 50-mile Ultra. All but two of their runners are immigrants representing the following countries; Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, Nigeria, and the United States, as well as Puerto Rico. Discussed in this episode: --Boston globe article on Bostontweet --Story of how Tom met his wife --Rosie's Place --Sid Baptista of PIONEERS Run Crew on Social Sport --Black Men Run --Black Girls Run --Latinos Run --Dominican Runners, NYC --Heart to Cart --Impact Video Group --Donate here or text STRIDE to 44321 Quotes: --“Races are the only sport where you're running with the best of the best—the professionals, like Meb and Shalane. There is no other sport where you're competing with them; you can't play football with Tom Brady. The same thing goes for wage inequity. A CEO makes 258 times what the average employee makes, which is awful, but if those two guys run the same race, the employee could beat the CEO. How empowering is that?” --“When you finish a race, you're high-fiving everyone. That's all you care about—that you ran. You're just so happy for yourself and for everyone else. Nothing else matters at that point. You're not thinking about politics or how much money you made…It changed my life, and I think it can change so many others.” Follow Tom: Twitter, Instagram Follow Stride for Stride: Twitter, Instagram Follow Social Sport: Website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Newsletter --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/socialsport/support

In this special SpOoOOoky Halloween season episode, Paulina and Jess interview Caribbean-American activist, educator, and scholar Emani Jerome about horror films and representation, with a special focus on race, gender, and class. We're also honored to have Emani as our first non-Romani, or "International Relations" guest! Emani takes us through a list of films, including but not necessarily limited to Get Out, The Witch, Midsommar, Eraserhead, Candy Man, Birth of a Nation, Blacula, The People Under the Stairs, Tales from the Hood, The Wickerman, Poltergeist, Cannibal Holocaust, and more. We also touch on Black Mirror and the intersection of horror and sci-fi, and distinctions between the two. We examine the use of common race and class tropes, the role of horror films in culture, and the emergence of new horror by BIPOC filmmakers. Spoilers and cursing are abound in this highly entertaining and thought-provoking episode.

Sen. Schumer blasted Republicans on the Senate floor to Manchin's chagrin. Sixto Wagan discusses BIPOC grants in Art and Culture. Sixto Wagan is the Project Director for the BIPOC Arts Network and Fund. He leads BANF along with a seven-member Steering Committee and a nine-member Accountability and Advisory Council made up of a diverse group of artists, curators, scholars, organizational leaders, and foundation partners, who guide goals and priorities. Bernie Sanders goes ballistic on Joe Manchin. Stop holding Prez, 48 Senators, & Americans hostage. Senator Chuck Schumer would have none of it. He called out Republicans on the Senate floor. Of course, our favorite DINO was upset that Schumer went to the floor with the truth. I never heard Manchin call out McConnell as he lied on the floor. --- If you like what we do please do the following!

Representation is a big issue for BIPOC people, and representation in church music? Even more so. This is the first episode on our theme of representation: why it is important, and what is overlooked when equal representation is missing. Cara and Michael chat about some observations Cara’s picked up in her capacity as a music student and professional musician, and why “merit-based hiring” is a good way to shut out entire demographics of professionals.
Our conversation meanders all over and covers how she got into hypnosis, why she wanted to learn how to facilitate these sessions, how it's influenced her life, how she taps into her own intuition and how we've both evolved when it comes to haunted spaces and being able to clear them with less fear.Sarah is a beauty and skin care influencer, a hypnotist, and a tech communications company leader, world traveler and more!More about Sarah and her gifts:Website: https://www.sarahlouwho.comInstagram: @Sarah_LouWho. . . . . .You can support the podcast if you're feeling giving or thankful:Leave a 5-star review on Apple Podcasts.Share this episode with a friend who would be interested in this conversation.Thank you for listening, your emails sharing parts of your stories, and for the reviews.

Today we sit down with playwright, aerialist, and mother of three dogs, Queerean Nina Ki! We discuss the extra labor that goes into submitting as an artist of color, acting in your own plays (because you're the only person who knows Korean), writing horror (Asian style), finding inspiration from unlikely sources on Netflix, queering deeply upsetting Korean folk tales, integrating aerial work into musicals, looking for Queerean representation in media, and Holly has their bi-annual podcast Buffy fan moment with Nina. We also discuss our thoughts ahead of the Tony Awards, our return to Broadway seeing Wicked the musical and how you can help raise awareness for missing LGBTQ+ and BIPOC individuals.

So we've come to the end of the road. Still, we can't let you go... without one more episode. That's right, it's the finale night of Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise. We see the end of the Noah and Abigail saga, we see fantasy suite dates and THREE engagements. One of the engagements is the FIRST engaged Black couple in franchise history, yes you read that correctly. For the finale, we have 60 BIPOC points! We did not have any dates. We saw Abigail, Mari, Thomas, Aaron, and Serena P. give the gab. We also saw Chelsea and Natasha on our screen and were sent home. This franchise is not a safe space for black women so Danielle takes away 6 points for Natasha and Chelsea's departure. Danielle gives 10 bonus points for the BIPOC contestants that get engaged. Megan points out that all the couples have one BIPOC person. We also see our first black love story with Maruissa and Riley. Danielle also takes away 1 point for the Kendall show up, Serena (and Joe) didn't deserve that mess during their engagement.

Kamie has always had a passion for investigative journalism and is now putting her own “FBI” skills to the test while working alongside Nev Schulman as the co-host of MTV's hit series, “Catfish: The TV Show.” When she's not poking holes in people's stories, Kamie is partnering on social content with major beauty, fashion and lifestyle brands like Hulu, Swarovski, Lancôme, Dove, Crest, Always, and Chobani. As a model in a fashion world that deems anything over a size 4 as “plus-sized,” as well as in the influencer/digital space which often lacks inclusion, Kamie is committed to using her influence to amplify the importance of body positivity and diversity in the digital sphere and beyond. In the 2020 elections, Kamie was heavily involved with the current Biden-Harris Administration and Stacey Abrams' Civics for the Culture initiative getting BIPOC voters out to the polls. One of Kamie's passions is to empower young girls and uplift the youth. She is LGBTQ+ affirming and her commitment to support marginalized groups and communities has led to her becoming an ambassador for Best Buddies.

On today's show, recorded in our mobile podcast studio storytella, I sit down with Brenda Equihua, founder and creative director of Equihua, a brand inspired by her Mexican roots. Growing up in Santa Barbara, she was raised in a close-knit Mexican community, but that never stopped her from realizing the affluent white people in her area. Her entry to art stemmed from childhood trauma at the age of 4, but therapy wasn't accessible or the cool thing to normalize. But she was also a weird kid who would go outside and envision adventures and talk to herself; she'd channel all of that energy into drawing magical worlds when the everyday world became too much.

Are you hesitant to identify as a feminist? Conversely, do you struggle to understand why any woman WOULDN'T want to identify as a feminist? Cultural messaging around what feminism means is so pervasive that even proud feminists often have to shed cultural narratives that feminists are angry, humorless man-haters. When you look at the history of feminism through an intersectional lens, it becomes even clearer why some women - especially BIPOC women - may not identify with the movement. In this episode, I am joined by four of my Advanced Certification in Feminist Coaching (ACFC) graduates to discuss their discomfort with the label prior to joining the certification, and how ACFC changed their relationship to feminism. Whether you strongly identify as a feminist, or you're unsure about whether you want to be one and what that even means, this episode will help you understand your own blind spots around why other people may not relate to this movement as you do.
