This week we sat down with some of CDSA’s most vocal feminists about their experiences as single leftists in the dating world. We got deep into the politics of dating apps, the importance of communication, non-traditional relationship set-ups and our hopes for a more socialist feminist future. But mostly we just cracked each other up.

We spoke to UIUC GEO organizer Patrick Kimutis about the graduate employee strike that started this morning. We also spoke to UChicago GSU organizer Grant MacDonald and YDSA Loyola Co-Chair Jess Collins.
As the federal government intensifies its crackdown against immigrants and immigrant communities—from the DACA repeal to Trump’s travel ban—the struggle for sanctuary becomes ever more important. The Chicago Religious Leadership Network on Latin America (CRLN) is an interfaith organization that mobilizes with 30 congregations throughout the Chicagoland area to fight for sanctuary that goes beyond basic, short-term protections. “Sanctuary is not a one-time event. It’s a process. It’s a strategy, a way of organizing,” says immigration organizer Cinthya Rodriguez.
In this episode, two members of CRLN discuss their vital organizing work in immigrant communities. Claudia Lucero is a long-time community organizer in the Chicago area and currently serves as CRLN’s Executive Director. Cinthya Rodriguez is the Immigration Organizer for CRLN, where she mobilizes faith communities to support undocumented-led movements.
