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.

Guest 2.  Dr. Amanda Morrison went to high school at Santa Rosa High, college at UC Santa Cruz, and completed a doctorate in cultural anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin, which includes degree specializations in Mexican American Studies and popular culture studies. She has taught ethnic studies and anthropology classes at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and Sonoma State University. In addition to her academic work, she has published articles on popular music and the arts in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, the Oakland Tribune, and other newspapers. She recently took a full-time position as Coordinator of SRJC Petaluma’s Intercultural Center which is known as “Our House.” Her passion is helping facilitate deep conversations about race and inequality. To this end, Dr. Amanda Morrison has begun advocating for more ethnic studies classes at SRJC and, in her work as Chair of North Bay Organizing Project’s Education Justice Task Force, she’s involved in the campaign to push for ethnic studies in local middle and high schools. Amanda announces the upcoming We the Future Social Justice Conference at the SRJC Petaluma campus on Friday April 28, 2017 from 8am to 6pm.
