Does normality breed indifference for lives different than our own? Today we talk about Refugees in Australia.
In this episode of Idioms of Normality, Paul speaks with Marjorie Tenchavez, founder of Welcome Merchant, a social enterprise that elevates refugee-powered businesses in Australia. Beneath a beautiful veneer of beaches and biodiversity hides an ugly underbelly of bureaucratically protected borders that can make the refugee experience in coming to Australia horribly difficult. Does normality breed indifference for lives different than our own? Marjorie discusses her personal journey into this work as well as the stories and fulfillment she has felt along the way.
