When she was the Global Press Secretary of Human Rights Campaign, Kerry Brodie was jolted by the appalling headlines about the refuge crisis. That was in 2016 and the news has only gotten worse. To help improve the lives of immigrants struggling to find jobs in America, Brodie founded Emma’s Torch. On this episode of Speaking Broadly, Brodie describes how her culinary school education and a grandmother who loved event planning laid the foundation for her current work. We also dive into addressing the challenges facing those in the cross hairs of the Trump administration’s policies.
