#12 Baselines and Soul Work: Hillary Scholten on Immigration Reform and the Urgency of Creating Good Policy
Hillary Scholten, an attorney who worked for the DOJ under President Obama and then provided legal representation for migrant workers in Michigan, considers how government policy, people of faith, and the larger community can intersect to create healing refugia spaces.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/refugia/message
This week we interviewed Hillary Scholten who is eyeing to become the first Democratic Congresswoman in West Michigan's history (and first congresswoman since the mid-50s). Hillary shared many elements of her platform, but more than that, she described why she believes what she does. We also talked about the challenges she faces in this election because she's a woman and the uniqueness of a three-party race. It was a fascinating and inspiring conversation. The wine we drank today was Unlitro by Ampeleia, a natural wine from Italy. This tasty, single-vineyard red is fantastic, zesty, and only $20! Easily one of the best value wines out there.If you want to learn more or donate to Hillary's campaign, you can do that here: https://www.hillaryscholten.com/.
