Interview: Miry's List

Mike Blejer

I've known Miry Whitehill-Ben Atar for a long time. Basically since she had one last name and zero teeth. Over the past six months she's started Miry's List (which is why I no longer get to call her Miriam), a crowdsourcing organization that provides necessary resources and services to recently relocated refugees from Syria, Jordan, Afghanistan, Iraq and other places around the world. I recently worked with her on a list, then and sat down to talk about the kind of work she does, the Trump Muslim Ban, her experience bringing a refugee to protest in the Women's March, how she helps in her community, and how you can help in yours. Do it. Do it today.

Listen to our chat below, and check out a few pictures before heading over to Miry's List yourself and deciding how you can help.
