Palmas del Valle

Palmas del Valle is a podcasting project that will interview various changemakers in Brownsville, Texas to demystify local social justice efforts and counter the narratives shared by the ruling class to discredit progressive individuals and movements. Grounded in the belief that people deserve to know that there are others taking action for the well-being of border communities, the series will elevate voices of those speaking against injustices by those in power, who frequently ignore calls for change. Artist Xandra Treviño will also aim to create a resource library to guide listeners who would like to become involved in civic engagement.
