In this episode, I talk to Mónica Ramirez. She is an activist, attorney, and the founder of the nonprofit Justice For Migrant Women. For over two decades, she has fought for the civil and human rights of women, children, workers, Latinos/as and immigrants. As part of her work with Justice for Migrant Women, just this year, Mónica worked alongside leaders in Washington to introduce numerous pieces of legislation (among them the BE HEARD Act and The CARE Act) and was awarded the 2019 MAFO Lifetime Achievement Award. Monica is also an Ohio State Alum.
