"If we can agree to disagree on some issues, we could actually have a broader human rights platform if we are willing to include people whose views may be a little different than ours."  This week's guest is Terry Uyeki who was one of the main organizers and contacts for the Women's March on Eureka which has been described as the largest march in Humboldt County’s history.   Terry talks about her role in organizing the march and the impact of activism on her life.

Chronologically Gifted: Summary on Feminism

Jun 15, 2017

This week, Ann Diver-Stamnes and Pam Brown talk about what they learned from their four guests on the ways in which feminism has changed over the past decades and what thoughts their guests sparked for them. They are in agreement about one essential point:  they don’t want to walk back in time so that women have to worry about being groped or hassled or told to smile on the plaza or told to be quiet.  They want feminism today to be bold.


  

The local NAACP is calling for stricter moderation rules on local media comment sections. Is this call to action an act against our 1st amendment rights?

From NPR

Algiers new album The Underside Of Power is one of 2017's most ambitious and intense records. I love it — but sometimes I have to just have to hit pause. There's a fierceness both in subject and sound and source, including speeches from Fred Hampton of the Black Panthers, bold and dark lyrical imagery of death and rage, sounds of people weeping, drones, chimes and what at times feels like the entire history of rock, gospel and R&B wrapped into fifty-one minutes. There's a lot to unpack here.

A federal judge in Michigan granted temporary reprieve from deportation on Thursday to more than 100 Iraqi nationals with criminal convictions who were living in the Detroit area. They had argued they could face persecution or torture in Iraq because of their status as religious minorities, The Associated Press reports.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which represented the Iraqis, says they include Christians and Muslims.

Hours after Republican leaders released the 140-page draft of the Better Care Reconciliation Act, senior senators from Oregon and Washington were taking questions alongside the top Democrat in the Senate, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.

Schumer spoke first, calling the bill a "wolf in sheep's clothing," but with "sharper teeth" than the legislation the House of Representatives narrowly passed in May.

Several Democrats said if the House version was "mean" — as President Donald Trump described it — then the Senate bill is "meaner."

From light rail to commuting by bike, the Portland area has a long history of transportation experimentation.

Now, the big transportation bill in the Oregon Legislature calls for another innovation beloved by traffic reformers: congestion pricing.

The measure orders the Oregon Transportation Commission to move forward with implementing variable tolling in conjunction with major freeway projects on Interstates 5 and 205.

The idea is that higher prices to use roads can manage congestion.
