YAIR's Speak Up/Speak Out podcast series is intended to share the personal stories of immigrant and refugee youth in Portland as a way to foster cross-cultural connections and empathetic exchange. Through our podcast, we hope to change some common misconceptions of the IR (immigrant/refugee) community, as well as build trust among disparate communities and showcase the power of storytelling.
We believe empathetic exchange and discussion is more informative and educational than a lecture. Stories are deeply personal to someone's experience and is more valuable than a generalized overview of the traditional "Immigrant/Refugee experience".
Stay tuned for our very first episode of our podcast series coming out soon!
