I am proud and thrilled to let you know that Alex Stonehill, cofounder of The Seattle Globalist and I have teamed up to bring a series of Tahmina Talks Immigration podcasts! We will be focusing on the fast and furiously changing immigration policies affecting so many in our community. Some of these changes are drastic and it is likely many affected are not aware of the implications. Changes are occurring in all areas of immigration- asylum laws, students visas, work visas, and much more.
Alex Stonehill is Head of Creative Strategy for the UW’s Communication Leadership Master’s Program. He has a background as a visual journalist and has reported from over a dozen countries, including Syria, Ethiopia and Pakistan. He’s been teaching journalism and storytelling at UW and in youth education programs for nearly a decade. He’s also co-founder of The Seattle Globalist and served as Editor-in-Chief from 2012-2016. He joined the board in July 2017.
