Today, we’re speaking with Sara Whitver about research and advocacy work. Sara and I had a wonderful time talking about researching for causes that matter to us today, and I hope you have as much fun listening to our chat as we had making this episode. In this episode, we’ll talk about strategies for finding quality information to support your arguments and advocacy work, strategies for sifting through bias in media sources, and our own mutual research interests in kinship and motherhood in the LGBTQIA+ community.
