Josefina fervently believes that to WRITE is how we become visible.
Tell your own story, be the protagonist of your life, otherwise, you will be invisible. Words matter, the pages you will write them in will take your pain away and elevate your presence!
Her Story and His story matter.

“Dr. Shah is a demographer and a very enthusiastic one. He’ll begin our day with baseline picture of where we are headed as a population so we will better understand ourselves as a society. But no worries, you’ll be entertained with his take on these trends, as he himself is a living example of one of the most prolific ones.”
Dr. Shah says “Dramatic considerable increase for all other groups”, regarding the year 2050 vs. 2010. He ignores African Americans going down in percentage. Alarming. At least three things are causing African-Americans not to grow as a percentage of U.S. population: cops are killing Black people at the rate of about one every 26 hours, mass incarceration during the prime of their life, and classist immigration policies which favor the highly educated.
