Weekend Passport: Immigrant and Nonwhite Storytellers Find Community in ‘Luya’

Every Friday, our Global Citizen Nari Safavi stops by for Weekend Passport, where he shows us how to travel the world without ever leaving Chicago. Today, he chats with Filipina poet Chris Aldana, who organizes a monthly series of open-mic events centering the voices of immigrants and racialized minorities called “Luya.”
