Let’s Talk Immigration: Tahmina Martelly

From economic growth to cultural enrichment, immigrants are essential. But they’re not always seen this way, even in the communities that depend on them. This week on Let’s Talk Immigration, field mobilizer Joel Tooley sits down with Tahmina Martelly, a resiliency programs manager for World Relief Seattle and immigrant from Bangladesh. Together, they discuss her experiences navigating the complex relationship between race and immigration in America—from the summers she spent with farmworkers in the fields of Idaho as a teenager to her current work with refugees.
