6/10/14: This week on "In Other Words:"

"Immigration is a women's issue," says activist and Washington state senate candidate Pramila Jayapal. Three-quarters of American immigrants are women and children. Over half of undocumented workers are women. Women who work as domestics in homes and other such jobs don't get pay stubs so are excluded in much of immigration reform. A fellow at the University of Washington law school and at the Center for Community Change, Jayapal ran an immigrant advocacy organization for 11 years and was a White House "Champion of Change" in 2013. Born in India, she came to the United States at age sixteen. Hear a conversation between Pramila Jayapal and Missoula's Kay Whitlock, Tuesday evening at 10:30.

"Every day, we wake up with a choice--a choice of what kind of human being we want to be, what kind of world we want to create and what kind of action we'll take to create it.  In making these choices, we form movements.  In making these choices, we change the world." - Pramila Jayapal
