StoryCorps Phoenix: Lilia Alvarez and Anna Berlenga
We are pleased to share the voices and conversations of our community from StoryCorps Phoenix. StoryCorps Phoenix is the project that records the stories of everyday people and archives them at the Library of Congress.
The StoryCorps Mobile Booth is parked at the Phoenix Art Museum and has been very busy. We’ll air a conversation each Monday on KJZZ as part of the Phoenix visit.
Today, we’ll here a conversation between Lilia Alvarez and Anna Berlenga.
Lilia grew up in California. At a young age, she was taught to stand up for what she believed in. Today she is an advocate for civil and social justice.
Lilia came to Story Corps Phoenix to talk about her experience.
