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.

Featuring First Guest
1. Annie Dobbs-Kramer, Voter Engagement Community Organizer, North Bay Organizing Project (NBOP), City of Santa Rosa Rent Stablization Measure C

2.  Announcements and Commentary

Featuring Second Guest
3. Susan Lamont , Co-Founder, Police Brutality Coalition - Sonoma County


 1.  Guest Annie Dobbs-Kramer talks about Measure C submitted for the June Ballot by the City of Santa Rosa on Rent Stabilization. "No on Measure C" has been headlined by six large mailers to date, which indicates a lot of money behind stopping this Measure. Do renters often holding many jobs to make the rent and food each month have the time or money to support ads for Measure C? 
 NBOP states on their website About Us:  We are a power organization. works - in collaboration with working people, congregations, environmentalists, neighborhood organizations, young Latino professionals, youth who are eager to lead, but lack venues, progressive organizations, immigrant rights organizations and unions - we seek effective ways to address the divide. We know that no matter how hard poor people work without organizing for structural change the conditions that keep them poor will continue."

2. Announcements and Commentary by Elaine B. Holtz on the Science Marches and the Climate Marches the end of April. 

I want to do a shout out to Amy Goodman and her crew at Democracy Now they had two five hour specials covering the marches in Washington DC - April 22, 2017 - Earth Day March for Science and on April 29, 2017 - the People's Climate March – the website is https://www.democracynow.org/
 I watched both specials and I was so inspired I want to share it with my listeners. I felt like I was part of a greater community and got to see how committed people are to making change. I was also so inspired that I saw so many young people involved and knew that as a Grandmother I must reach out in solidarity.
I had an epiphany at the Saturday Rally and March: El Pueblo Unido: People's March for Jobs, Justice and the Climate. I attended in Santa Rosa. A shout out to all those who helped put it together, a lot of work and commitment. As Grandmothers we must speak out. As mothers we must speak out, as women we must speak out. No matter if you have children or not the great spirit endowed us with the ability to bring forth life and we are not protesting, we are not protesting. We are protecting. Protecting the future of the children of this planet, of the greatest mother of us all earth itself.

Susan talks about the forming Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO)out of the killing of 13-year old Andy Lopez by Sheriff Deputy Gelhof in October 2013 after 3 years of community voluntary engagement to press for oversight of the Sheriff's Office.  Susan will discuss the firing of a local activist Attorney Alicia Ramon who was selected to serve as Chairperson of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) but  was “fired” by the IOLERO Director Jerry Threet last month.
