In this episode of Mental Health Verses, I’m joined by Jennifer Connor, co-founder and Executive Director for Justice for Migrant Families WNY.

Jennifer has a rich history of music appreciation and performance as an amateur musician. She is currently a member of Nusantara Arts Gamelan Orchestra. Jennifer’s work on behalf of migrant families demonstrates a passion to be an advocate for those who have no voice. Music is a central part of Jennifer’s self-care and emotional wellbeing. In our conversation, we also delve into Jennifer’s upbringing in her family that shared times together singing traditional Irish songs.

The songs Jennifer shares about are:

We Shall Be Known by Thrive Choir

Isla Vadova by Tree

Nil Na La by Solas
