My name is Saadia Khan. I am a social entrepreneur and the founder and host of Immigrantly. Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that deconstructs the archaic stereotypes of what it means to be an immigrant, a child of immigrants, a person of color, and everything in between. Each episode brings a fresh perspective on the issues we address. Our conversations are complex, challenging, and oftentimes messy. But I wouldn’t trade the messiness for anything, because what we have created instead is a new, ongoing dialogue full of rich nuances.

Our today's guest is Moumita Ahmed. She is a movement organizer, community activist, civic leader, & a candidate for the New York City Council, District 24. Moumita’s campaign is built around ensuring that working families don’t have to make sacrifices to afford things like education, healthcare, and a home. We spoke about a host of issues, including climate change, the NY housing crisis, optimism in the midst of all the chaos, and why recycling may not be as effective as we think.
