Oregon lawmakers don't make the grade on racial equity

Communities of color are the fastest growing communities in Oregon, more than doubling in size - 21.5 percent of the total population - in the last two decades. But racial disparity continues to run deep despite this change. Many communities of color experience poverty rates two to three times higher than white Oregonians. Although the futue of Oregon's prosperity depends on fair opportunities and economic stabilty for all Oregonians, state lawmakers continue to fall short in dealing with these racial and economic gaps.

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.
