Mistaken Identities

By: Thaly Eman (Italy)

It is one thing to depoliticize issues such as religion or race at the highest levels – work at this level is undeniably important. But what happens to everyday people in the meantime? Communities around the world witnessed recent spikes in atrocities against Jewish, Asian and Muslim communities – to name a few – due to harmful misperceptions and stereotypes that persist in our society. Mistaken Identities is Thaly’s podcast series that finds these everyday people and talks to them about their experiences of not only navigating harmful bias and ignorance, but how these experiences make them more resolute in their missions to live peacefully together.
