Global Notes: Selena for Sanctuary

Over the past year, a woman from San Bernardino County has harnessed the power of music to raise funds for immigrants fighting deportation. Concert promoter and artist manager Doris Muñoz created the recurring concert series Solidarity for Sanctuary to support immigration activism. The only natural-born U.S. citizen in her family, Muñoz experienced her brother’s deportation after his DACA status was revoked, and she’s been forced to live in fear of losing her parents. Her Solidarity for Sanctuary series has been extremely popular and rapidly gained momentum — expanding from Los Angeles to New York. On this week’s Global Notes segment, Vocalo’s Beat Latino host and producer Catalina Maria Johnson will discuss Muñoz’ story and play some of the popular music from the series.
