Drost Kokoye and her family fled from Iraq when she was a young child. Facing her teenage years as a Muslim in a post-9/11 world, Drost was a victim of prejudice and racial discrimination. Today, Drost works as a multicultural organizer with the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, ensuring that the voices of immigrants and refugees are heard and are recognized as positive contributions to the state. She will be joining Welton on this week’s show to discuss what steps her organization is taking to create an atmosphere of religious freedom and social, racial and economic justice in Tennessee.
