Our stories have influence. Podcaster, author, and speaker Jamie Ivey understands this power of story. Enjoy this incredible conversation as we talk to her about why we should tell our stories, especially those that motivate us to care for immigrants and refugees, and the lies that keep us from doing so.We discuss how to best share online, in person, and during this election year. Jamie came with us to the border last year and shares her own story about how she came to care about the challenges facing immigrants and refugees.
