Good intentions don’t always feel so good. In this episode, we talk with Vicky, a Mexican mom whose kids attend an integrated school in a gentrifying neighborhood. Vicky shares what it feels like to be “saved” by some of the white &/or privileged families at her kids’ schools (spoiler: not so great).  Relationships are hard and trust takes time to build.  And privilege, especially privilege unexamined, shows up in unexpected places.
