Youth Collective Report: June - Dec, 2008


Hello listeners and members, we’ve wrapped up another successful year with KBOO's Youth Collective. We’ve reached a new level of stability within the group and with new community partners, with exciting plans on the horizon.

In 2009 we saw an increase in the average age of the KBOO Youth, and now the Collective is majority teenagers. In the recent past we had a group that consisted of youth who were 19 and 20, and many who were 11 and 12.

Also within the station we have had a fair amount of school and community groups visit. In the past six months we have hosted youth from Human Solutions, a residential home outside Beaverton, youth from Helensview High School on 86th and Sumner, youth from The Pangaea Project, and youth from the Centennial Learning Center, where we did our Global Youth Service Day project last April.

What opportunities and challenges have the events of 2008 created for us in the coming year? Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein is joined by two college students - Justin Ralls and Ted Sweeney, whom she recently met at a Sellwood cafe - for a cross-generational conversation about how we create social movements for change in the current climate. How are these times similar to another crossroads era, the 1960s, yet how are they significantly different? This program continues the coffehouse conversation and opens it up to KBOO's listeners.

In Other Words needs our help

The message below from In Other Words, the LAST non-profit, feminist bookstore in the country. Please repost widely, even to contacts outside of Portland. This community resource has touched many lives in her long herstory. Let us support those who have supported us for so long. Thank you, Carla

Dear friends,

In Other Words, like so many of our fellow bookstores, has fallen upon incredibly hard financial times.  With the decline in our current economy, we have experienced severely decreased revenue.  If we are unable to raise $11,000 by the end of December, In Other Words will have to close its doors.

Iraqi Child Returns Home

Evening News
program date: 
Tue, 12/02/2008

Mustafa Abed, a boy from Fallujah, returned to Iraq today after a tearful goodbye at the Portland airport.

Mustafa's father, Ahmed, expressed his gratitude to the group No More Victims and the people of Portland for their help.  Last month, Ahmed spoke at the Portland Winter Soldier event, along with local Iraq Veterans Against the War.

No More Victims is a group committed to showing people in the US the human cost of the ongoing occupation in Iraq.   They bring children who were injured by US forces in Iraq to the US for medical treatment.

Cole Miller, a co-founder of the group, spoke on KBOO last year about No More Victims.  Ned Rosch and Maxine Fookson heard the interview, and were inspired to start a branch in Portland.  They worked tirelessly to raise money and support, and managed to bring Mustafa and his father to Portland on September 8th.
