program date: 
Wed, 07/08/2009

Over 75 percent of Americans want health care reform according to a new Pew Research poll. President Obama remains committed to reforming our health care system this year. But as Congress struggles to craft legislation, the voice of concerned voters is getting drowned out by a vocal minority working from the same play book. Will serious health care reform die on the operating table at the hands of congressional Republicans, conservative pundits, and industry spin doctors?

Where do Trans folk fit in Gay Pride?

Is there a T in Gay Pride? Portland’s Gay Pride wrapped this weekend. While this year’s theme was “Unity” one group was notably less visible than previously—trans folk.
