Description

Why, in a country as prosperous as the United States, are millions of people just trying to get by? What would it take to change that and realize the promise of a healthier and fairer country for all? Join Julián Castro as he reimagines America in conversation with real people all over the country who are struggling, aspiring, and trying to reach their dreams. Drawing on his own experiences -- growing up in a low-income household, becoming Mayor of San Antonio, leading Housing and Urban Development for President Obama, and running for President himself -- Julián brings us hope. Each week, he works toward solutions with community leaders, big thinkers, and cultural icons, exploring how issues like poverty, race, gender, and immigration status intersect to shape our America and its possibilities.

Return To Flint
2488
It’s hard to look at the current administration’s decision to downplay the severity of the Coronavirus without thinking about the Flint water crisis. Both stories reflect the devastating impact of misinformation and government inaction. This week, we return to Flint and talk to a dynamic duo: Pastor Ezra Tillman and First Lady Catrina Tillman. We hear about the incredible work they’re doing to support their community and the progress still left to be done. Join Julián for a wide-ranging conversation that covers everything from environmental racism, Diana Ross, and the kindness of strangers.  Keep up with Julián on twitter @JulianCastro and Instagram @JulianCastroTX Resources from this episode Learn move about the First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church through their website and Facebook page.  Support The Water Box at 501cTHREE.org Support the show by checking out our sponsor You can digitally purchase life insurance from Haven Life Insurance Agency at havenlife.com/ouramerica.

My America
2547
In 2012, on the stage of the Democratic National Convention, Julián Castro described the American Dream as a relay. In the first episode of Our America, we dig into the Castro family’s backstory. We follow the baton passing from one generation to the next, starting with Julián’s grandmother immigrating to the US nearly 100 years ago. Julián and his twin brother, Congressman Joaquin Castro, talk about their journey from the segregated West Side of San Antonio to the national stage. We also meet their mom, Rosie, an activist in her own right, who highlights raising her sons with a strong sense of Mexican-American identity and how that helped shape their life’s trajectory.
