With the Fire on High: The Writing Process in COVID-19
For me to be productive as a woman of color in academia, my writing needs to be driven by a connection to what is real, lived, and urgent. COVID-19 is not normal, and I argue should not be considered the “new” norm.

‘We Didn’t Cross The Border, The Border Crossed Us:’ The Importance Of Ethnic Studies
I once heard a story about a man that needed to go North from Mexico to the United States in the 1940s. At the time, Guerrero, Mexico was depleted of resources and there were no jobs for the people.
