It's our last episode of the season! Juanita and Grecia review their favorite moments of the past 17 episodes and look ahead to next season.

Juanita and Grecia try to come to terms with the election of Donald Trump, and talk about where we go next. They also take time to celebrate some of the biggest wins from the election, from Catherine Cortez Masto, the first Latina to be elected to the United States Senate, to Adriano Espaillat, the first Dominican-American and the first formerly undocumented person to be elected to Congress. Most importantly, Grecia and Juanita remind us to take care of ourselves and our loved ones right now, remember that we are all in this together, and be ready for the fight. We've been through worse before, and we're not going anywhere.

Text JUSTICE to 69866 to get informed and involved in the fight for immigrant rights.
