Special Episode: Crisis in Brazil. Update with Tamires Gomes Sampaio (Current Events)

In this episode we talk with Brazilian activist Tamires Gomes Sampaio about the political and economic crisis gripping Brazil. Tamires Gomes Sampaio is a lawyer and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Law and a Master’s Degree in Political and Economic Law from Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie. She was the first black woman to be appointed president of the Law Students Union of Mackenzie. She is the former vice president of the National Union of Students of Brazil (2015-2017), and she advocates for the inclusion of black young people in higher education. She is currently the director of the Lula Institute. 


A note: From time to time we will be covering current events in addition to our regular podcasts on the economy. This podcast is primarily designed for educators and we believe that current events are an important part of any class. We hope that by interviewing experts we might gain insight about political and economic events that are happening in the world right now. We also hope that these interviews can provide some clarity when preparing lessons. Please let us know how we are doing! Thank you.
