#11 – Policies and not prayers with the Milkshake Sisters

And just like that, we’re kicking off Season 2 of ABCDEI!

In episode 1, Susan and Rohini are joined in studio by another dynamic duo – the Milkshake Sisters. Marianna and Angel are activists and educators with a focus on trans rights, with an intersectional lens given their immigrant roots. This episode tackles some tricky unlearning territory: for marginalized folx, it’s resisting the urge to “exhale anger” and for cis-normative/white folx, it’s the need to self-educate and to stop approaching any marginalized group as a monolith.

The powerhouse duo leaves us with a serious call to action: change policies, don’t send prayers. Make sure to take notes as you tune into this supercharged lesson on equity.
