Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

Report on No! to U.S. Wars at Home and Abroad Rally and March in Oakland April 15

League of Women Voters Sponsored Forums in Sonoma County

On Monday's show of 4/16/18 WSA180416  our first guest Susan Lamont participated in the rally and march No! to U.S. Wars at Home and Abroad held Sunday April 15 in Oakland.  The nationwide action was planned in February as a voice of resistance to the increase in military action and budget of the United States in Syria and other places around the world.  Susan reports on the general mood of the crowd of 1000 that showed up in solidarity for a more peaceful and nurturing direction for the nation.

Our second guest Rebecca Jones talks about the League of Women Voters (LWV), founded in 1921, a year after the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution giving women the right to vote. The Sonoma County Chapter was founded in 1951. Rebecca talks about the mission of LWV to influence public policy through education and advocacy, yet LWV never supports or opposes any political party or candidate. We have an election coming up in the county on Tuesday, June 5, and the League has some events planned in April and May for citizens to register to vote and to learn about the candidates and issues in the county races. Visit the show's web archive page for more information the planned LWV events.

On Monday's show of 4/9/18 WSA180409  our first guest Mandy Brooks shares her path into music, her mentors and where she gets her confidence to produce with the North Bay Women In Music Collective the upcoming Women in Music Benefit Concert in Santa Rosa on April 21 at the Arlene Francis Center with a panel and artist showcase on Sunday April 22.  Mandy has been able to attract women musicians who have influenced the women over the decades to perform at this concert. The Concert will benefit Verity and The Ron Martin Memorial Foundation Friends Helping Friends fund to support education of women musicians. Mandy came out with her premier CD album Move On Up in 2017,and we opened the interview with her rendition of the song People Get Ready.

Our second guest Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence is joining the North Bay Women In Music Collective for the weekend event of Women In Music Benefit Concert in some spoken word presentations, one of which she reads on the show for us, the poem Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou. Jacqueline also talks about the upcoming Juneteenth celebration in Santa Rosa that occurs on Saturday June 16, 2018 in Martin Luther King Jr. Park, where she will present her play Unshackled at 10AM followed by discussion on slavery.

On Monday's show of 4/2/18 WSA180402  our first guest Kathleen Reily talks about some of the activites of the Americann Association of Universtiy Women (AAUW) in Sonoma County, especially advocating for Equal Pay for women as is paid men for the same job.  AAUW holds an annual ‘Unequal Cookie Sale’ on Equal Pay Day every year to bring awareness to gender pay gap at the different city chapters of AAUW in the nation.  The next Equal Pay Day, according to the National Committee on Pay Equity, is Tuesday, April 10, 2018. This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. In 2016 it was on April 12th, so there has been a bit of an improvement.

Our second guest Amanda Morrison, PhD, Coordinator of Our House Intercultural Center on the Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) Petaluma’s campus shares her path to interculturalism, that of cultures mixing and interacting with one another.  Amanda islead organizer in the second annual We the Future Social Justice Conference co-sponsored with the North Bay Organizing Project on April 13, 2018, calling this year' theme Feeding Ourselves, Feeding Our Souls, to gather activists to network.  The keynote speaker will be Nikki Silvestri,who was named one of the 100 Most Influential African Americans by The Root magazine.


On Monday's show of 3/19/18 WSA180326  our guest Cheryl Dorsey shares her odyssey through the ranks of the LAPD as a black woman beginning at the end of the 1970s at a time when women were first encouraged to join the police force amidst strong resentment by male officers in a traditionally all male force. She describes how supervisorial abuse abound especially due to bias of racism, sexism and reverse racism. She clarifies what she means by culture and the bond of officers who "have your back," and the difficulty of accountability and transparency when reporting fails to happen for fear of retaliation at "breaking the bond", forming what she called a Sheeple mentality.  After a fellow officer went beserk after unfair treatment within the LAPD and took the lives of many innocent victims, Cheryl published her memoir Black & Blue: The Creation of a Manifesto  in 2013. This is a fascinating interview and not to be missed in light of the upcoming election for Sonoma County Sheriff, in which we have for the first time in decades more than one candidate to choose from. Maybe a change is coming?

On Monday's show of 3/19/18 WSA180319  our guest Jade de la Cruz shares her awakening through a street-smart friend from New York City into the need for self-defense as a woman and how she obtained the confidence through teachers to defend herself but also to teach others these skills and heightened awareness. Jade relates how intuition can give us protective guidance in association with physical self-defense skills. Jade de la Cruz will be on the panel with DA Jill Ravitch,Verity E.D. Christina Castillo and Elaine B. Holtz of Women's Spaces at the Verity Fundraiser and Screening of the film of The Rape of Recy Taylor on Thursday, March 29 at the Rialto in Sebastopol. The film is sponsored by Sat On Her Case, a Sonoma County volunteer initiative for the speedy processing of rape kits by law enforcement agencies.
