Apropos of Something: The Deportation Crisis in our Community

Apropos of Something hosts Ellen Daniels and Nancy Laurence talk to immigration attorney Edward Summers, Community Engagement Coordinator Edgar Lara and activist and scholar Mimi Arbeit, Ph.D. Summers and Lara talk about the deportation crisis facing immigrants across the country, both from a legal and community perspective. Arbeit details the importance of one’s gender empowerment and offers ways to do that, starting in high school.

Why Apropos of Something? Because these queasy times call for humor and information. Co-hosted by Ellen Daniels in the Charlottesville studios of WPVC and Nancy Laurence in New York City, the program covers the hottest issues with a focus on world events, and especially Charlottesville’s local resistance efforts.

Apropos of Something is heard on WPVC 94.7 Saturday mornings at 10:00 AM. The station is currently looking for volunteers.
