In our first episode of en(gender)ed, we referenced the importance of recognizing and advocating for gender justice reforms alongside other forms of social justice, including environmental and economic justice. On today’s episode, we address the intersection of these issues, in particular, with respect to migrants and refugees who are at risk of increased illness, lost productivity/wages, disease and other public health threats, and even death. Female migrants and their children are also subject to higher risk of human and sex trafficking.
On today’s episode, our guest is Cat Song, Co-Founder and General Counsel of Exsulcoin, a blockchain startup creating solutions for refugees. Exsulcoin is a peer-to-peer marketplace for refugee integration and offers solutions including paying for tutoring, mentorship, or nanowork tasks. Cat founded the startup with her brother, James, in response to the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, formerly called Burma. A long-time advocate for anti-human trafficking initiatives, immigration, and legal rights for low-income populations, Cat is here to speak with us today about her work with Exsulcoin and how it is one part of the environmental, economic and gender justice solution needed for all migrants and refugees.
During our conversation, Cat and I referenced the following resources:
