Drive Goal:



The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/07/12

Air date: 
Tue, 02/07/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe look back on a good couple of weeks for women. Also -- pledge drive!

 It's been a good couple of weeks for women. First, there was the ruling that nonprofits must cover contraception in their employees' health plans, even if doing so runs counter to church doctrine. Then there was the stunning betrayal -- and equally stunning reversal -- by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Both were victories for the notion of women as full human beings, and, crucially, both were won in the court of public opinion.

Also, it's fund-raising time. Open yer wallets in the name of our fair sisters, y'all.

2012 Portland Youth Summit - Mis-Education of Our Youth

Tonight, join hosts Nia and Paula for conversation around the kitchen table on The Eavesdrop!

They will discuss the (mis-)education of Portland youth, which is the theme of the 6th Annual Portland Youth Summit, an event taking place on Friday, February 10th & Saturday, February 11th!

Mainstream media depicts our youth as violent, gun-toting, sociopathic, mentally under-developed adults. Nia and Paula challenge those depictions by examining the issues that lead to our youth being misunderstood.

Their special guest, Imani Muhammad, will share one of the solutions she created to bolster our community AND our youth.

Life in and after a cult: A conversation with a former member of "The Move"

Sam Fife began offering his vision of divine rule on earth in his small New Orleans church in the 1960s. By 1979, when Fife died in an airplane crash, The Move of the Spirit had grown into an international ministry that included thousands, many living separated from society in communal farms. The Move taught that members were creating a society in which people were free to hear and be led by divine prophecy. Ex-members, however, paint a different picture: a corrupt system of leadership that used physical, sexual and psychological abuse to maintain control.

Literacy programs at Multnomah County Library

It used to be that literacy was a question of: can you read or can't you? Today literacy experts look at the levels of reading ability -- reading a medicine bottle, a newspaper, or a ballot all require different levels of literacy. Our guest Melissa Madensky from the Multnomah County Library talks about their new literacy programs at the North Portland Library. Tune in and call 503-231-8187 with your stories about the issue, plus find out how you can help increase literacy in your community. Wednesday at 8am on 90.7 FM, KBOO.
