More and more, our movements don’t have a single soundtrack, but a mix of many–multi genre, multi lingual accents and melodies that move through and within ecosystems of our collective struggles. We invite you to listen to DJ Sizzle’s powerful, newly released compilation of music and audio clips of key moments of intervention from the US undocumented struggle. Listen to undocumented activists Ju Hong and Jennicet Gutierrez publicly interrupt and push former President Obama to protect undocumented and trans communities from deportation. Listen to this mix of lyrics and beats that keep us grounded and moving.
