About this Episode

Cathery talks about family activism; her family with others in her community created their own community-based organization, Los Alamitos Community United, and they in partnership with ACLU sued their own city. They won a lawsuit against the city's anti-sanctuary policies. In addition, they won the inclusion of ethnic studies curriculum implementation through K-12, as well as a High School graduation requirement. Cathery states that activism has transformed her view of mathematics education.  Cathery also co-authored the book re-imagining the mathematics classroom and talks about that.
