Host: Alejandra Y. Castillo, CEO of YWCA USA
Guest: Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (D-TX-16)
Congresswoman Veronica Escobar is a woman of firsts – she was one of the first Latina Congresswoman to serve in the U.S. Senate and she is the first Congresswoman to be on Organize Your Butterflies. In this conversation with Alejandra Y. Castillo, CEO of YWCA USA, they discuss the ways in which hatred has permeated America, how this country is having a reckoning moment when it comes to race, and the importance of accurate representation of justice-oriented values.
Further, we are pleased to release this episode on Mom’s Equal Pay Day and highlight the pay-gap women experience in the workforce. Together in shared values, Congresswoman Escobar and YWCA are working to create a more just world.
