Back to school: military and jail but not music and arts?

Military recruiters and other army personnel now have easy access to children, including in public schools where they did not use to, such as in Portland. Parents often are unaware that the US military can obtain their child's data. Learn the details and what we can do in response from Carol Van Houten from Truth in Recruiting. We will also discuss community mobilizations in response to what has become known as "school to prison pipeline."
We will then look at what is increasingly missing from public schools and talk to Jessica Jarratt Miller who manages the campaign "Schools & Arts Together" and directs the Creative Advocacy Network.

Can Occupy and strong women get along?

Women were instrumental in the Occupy movement across the United States, but in many cities that movement was still male dominated. There were allegations of sexual assault, abuse and explicitly sexist language. What does confronting this reality - or not - mean for creating that other world Occupy strives for? Join a conversation with a group of women from Occupy Portland who experienced the above and responded by forming a support system for women.

Have we lost our capacity for compassion? Sister Joan Chittister, an activist and author of  Called to Question,  is one of many scholars worldwide advocating for a return to the roots of caring and a commitment to do no harm. www.charterforcompassion.org  "This is not a pious and pretty little topic," says Sister Joan in this provocative interview.

Bridget B. here and I'm your host for this edition of Bread and Roses on KBOO 90.7FM.  Listen in as I talk about Feminism with references from key voices from the feminist movement, including Gloria from All In The Family, Gloria Steinem and Rebecca Walker.

Yes, this will be my last show with Bread & Roses and I wouldn't have come this far in producing shows like this had it not been for the wonderful opportunities to create radio with the help of this collective.  I'll still be on KBOO every other Saturday night from 7pm - 10pm hosting an Evening of Afrotainment and will continue to produce public affairs pieces for either podcasting or airing on other programs.  Send me an email and let me know if you'd like to be added to the email list for future announcements on my shows.

The Importance of Mother's Day

program: 
Bread and Roses
program date: 
Thu, 05/07/2009

Bridget B. here, and this edition of Bread & Roses was all about The Importance of Mother's Day; it's actual meaning and how you can get involved to make a difference. Given that this show fell right before Mother's Day, or on Mother's Day in other countries, I wanted to bring to your attention the what, why, when and by whom Mother's Day was conceived, what it has become over time and what you can do to re-direct this day back towards its original meaning.

During the show and in the midst of our membership drive, I shared the "Mother's Day Proclamation" as recited by some famous female actors and activists including Gloria Steinem, I included some information on what other countries do on their designated holiday and talked with my guest, Martha Shelley, one of the members and coordinators for CodePink here in Portland.  Our conversation included this weekend's events here in Portland and the rally in Washington, DC.

I also aired the audio from the Standing Women video clip, with a slight edit, on what they intend to do this coming Mother's Day.  So don't forget Mother's Day is scheduled for May 10, 2009 here in the US and there is a greater meaning to the day.

Many thanks to our Bread and Roses listeners, and remember, we're on every Friday on KBOO 90.7FM from 6pm - 7pm.

Ciao
