OBSCENE
OBSCENE is a new podcast hosted by Maya Contreras (NY EMMY Nominated Brewed in NY for PBS) discussing systemic inequalities that have allowed discrimination to flourish in the United States. We’ll examine discriminatory policies while discussing the history, influences, and future of those policies that directly impact women and marginalized groups. Through stories and interviews with experts, you'll be given new insights into the challenges facing women and marginalized communities. Through an intersectional approach, the podcast introduces new frameworks to improve your civic participation. As an informed constituency, we can influence our elected legislators to dismantle structural bigotry and misogyny by drafting inclusive policy that works for everyone.
