Aug 19 on FM: ‘One Tough Nun’, Latinas Taking Charge & Theatre From the Ground Up

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen and Celina Alvarez

Join us as we talk to ‘one tough nun’ – Sister Mary Scullion of Philadelphia – about how her work with homeless and low income folk landed her on TIME magazine’s 2009 list of the “World’s 100 Most Influential People.”

Hear from Laura Esquivel and Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health about their organization’s ‘quinceneara’, and what Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation means to their mission.

And we’ll meet Jennifer Cetrone, actress/producer and founder of From the Ground Up theater company, telling us about their next production: Getting Out – about a young woman released from prison and trying to starting her life over.
