Interview with Deepa Iyer
We dedicate this segment to the 51 lives lost in the terrorist attacks at the two Mosques in Christchurch, NZ.
In the two previous podcast segments, we interviewed inspirational women for Women's History Month. We continue this in our latest interview with Deepa Iyer and the conversation couldn't be more timely.
We discuss the current Islamophobia rhetoric permeating American politics and media, which are detrimentally impacting the South Asian, Muslim, and Arab communities. We also talk about accountability for our politicians and media on Islamophobic rhetoric, and how we move forward in solidarity.
