As the founding executive director of Youth Rise Texas, Kandace Vallejo is lifting up the voices of young people affected by mass incarceration and deportation. That means training young people to make their voices heard in Texas politics, showing them how to band together in what she calls an “activist club,” and helping them heal during difficult situations. In the news this week, Jill and Mike discuss the teachers’ strikes in Los Angeles and around the country.
