In this practice episode, Carolyn Nguyen and Emily Wong of Chinese Progressive Association’s Youth MOJO (Movement of Justice and Organizing) offer us a practice they use with young folks to cultivate cultural humility. They dispel the myth of cultural competency, inviting us instead into deep listening and reflection on what it takes to build deep cross-cultural and cross-generational trust and understanding.
