Your Playlist: Diana Jones

Diana Jones is a NYC based singer songwriter and her new CD Song To A Refugee (released yesterday) is a "heartfelt folk record focusing on the refugee crisis around the world as well as the border crisis." Here is the video for her song "We Believe You" (featuring Richard Thompson, Steve Earle and Peggy Seeger):

As Jones told the New York Times, “It’s important that we have people in our lives who believe us, especially for traumatized people — people who, in this case, are being demonized or ‘othered’ for wanting a safe haven and, eventually, a home.”

This song would be a truly excellent introduction to your discussion of issue of credibility in asylum cases.
