On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Zyphus Lebrun we profile the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, a forty-year-old organization that’s been building Asian political power in the city by mobilizing voters and grooming politicians. Abi Ishola interviews Phyllis Chesler about her harrowing experience in Kabul, after she was enslaved by her husband’s family. Then we hear about a circus that’s helping Mexican children overcome their personal trauma.
