Host Andy Mahler speaks with long-time Orange County resident and Texas native Helen Monica Vasquez about her activism on behalf of immigrants. Helen, a retired civil servant, has been a volunteer with the Guadalupe Center in Dubois County which provides services to the area’s Hispanic community which has more than doubled in the last decade.
