To kick off season 2, Erin, Momina and Mayuri tackle the usage of the phrase "thoughts and prayers". It's been used by politicians and government officials on many occasions, even more recently during the COVID-19 pandemic, but is that ever enough? Our hosts talk about their own thoughts on this and how the phrase is often misused.
This week on Underrated:
Mayuri plugs The Trevor Project, an organization focused on preventing suicide among LGBTQIA youth and Befrienders Worldwide, a global suicide prevention organization with suicide prevention hotlines.
Erin plugs the Marshall Project, nonprofit news organization that seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice system.
Momina plugs Mona Relief, an organization working on humanitarian and development efforts in Yemen.
