Podcast: Frontline report of Refugee Crisis in Greece with Kelly Milligan

We are witnessing a global refugee crisis unfold before our eyes and when we look to our own country, racism and fascism are on the rise.   Kelly Milligan of Sisters in Health,  spoke to us just before she left for Greece last year (listen to that podcast here) and has returned to the states to tell the tale from a front line account of the refugee rescue operation on the shores of Greece. This show aired live on WPRK 91.5fm on Wednesday, March 23, 2016.
