Oct 27 on FM: Pre-Election Special!

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen and Melissa Chiprin

You may already be tired of all those election ads on TV and in the mail… but you know you can count on Feminist Magazine to bring you the feminist and community-based analysis that you’ve been missing!

This program we’re covering key propositions:
First… Gretchen Burns Bergman, Cofounder of A New PATH (Parents for Addiction Treatment & Healing) discusses Proposition 19 and how it fits in with advocacy for therapeutic rather than punitive drug policies.

Then… we’ll be taking a new look at Propositions 23 and 26 and their potential effects on California’s women in terms of jobs and environmental justice with Martha Dina Arguello, Executive Director of Physicians for Social Responsibility.

And finally… we’ll have a conversation with Pam Tau Lee – recently retired from UC Berkeley’sSchool of Public Health and founder of San Francisco’s Chinese Progressive Association – getting her take on the California gubernatorial and senate races.

Plus: a special report from the road – from the California Nurses Association protest bus that’s been traveling around the state tailing Republican gubnatorial candidate Meg Whitman and protesting her with a “Queen Meg Farewell Tour” that’s tagged…. “Lies, Hypocrisy & Pink Slips.”
