Ep. 68 Irma Herrera | Social justice, mispronounced names, and a one-woman play


Today I am honored to be arts calling Irma Herrera!

About our guest:
Irma Herrera is a writer, solo performer, and social justice activista. A civil rights lawyer for 30+ years, she shares anecdotes of her time fighting for disadvantaged communities, the process behind her one-woman show, ‘Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?’ an hour-long show that is a mashup of personal narrative, lessons in American history, and stories about respecting people’s names, even when they don’t sound like “real” American names.

Stop by Irma’s website for Irma’s statement and show details:

An incredible and inspiring conversation, thanks for coming on the show, Irma!

All the best!
