Julia Ramos Grenier recalls her experience as a co-director of Education/Instruccion, a civil rights advocacy group based in Hartford, Connecticut, with Ben Dixon and Boyd Hinds. She describes her work in challenging housing discrimination with the Ya Basta project (translated as "Enough already"), including organizing volunteers to pose as home buyers in different Hartford and suburban neighborhoods to compare how real estate firms steered racial and language minorities toward specific areas. She also recounts more about the Westledge School and her activism at stockholder board meetings of insurance corporations based in Hartford.
