Nationly is new from Immigrantly Media, looking at issues impacting minority communities

Press Release ·

Immigrantly Media is excited to announce the launch of the trailer for their new limited-run podcast series, Nationly, set to debut in June 2024.

Nationly, co-hosted by J.D. Ramirez and Sara Sadhwani, will discuss the “Why?” behind political issues that really matter to minority communities—immigrants and communities of color—specifically in the battleground states at the heart of this year’s election season. Focusing on minority communities—specifically, immigrants and communities of color—'Nationly’ uncovers the issues that truly matter to these voters, ranging from global events like the situation in Gaza to local races such as the showdown between Kari Lake v. Ruben Gallego.

The podcast asks: Who’s spearheading the uncommitted movement in Michigan? What key issues are driving Latino support in Arizona? Why is Gen Z stepping up to run for office in Georgia? Delving into the “why” behind political issues, each episode explores key defining moments in the lives of these voters, providing a comprehensive view of America’s political spectrum and the diverse voices shaping it.
