Nov 12 on FM: Syrian revolution/ “Ban The Box”/ Skid Row

Hosted by Ariana Manov, Valecia Phillips & Abeni Moreno :
Is this what solidarity with Syria looks like? Immigrant academic and poet Dr. Mohja Kahf says progressives in the U.S. are failing the Syrian people. She’s an Associate Professor at the University of Arkansas where she teaches comparative literature and Middle Eastern studies. She is also a member of the Syrian Nonviolence Movement.
Do you have a criminal record? Sixty-five million Americans do. That means one in four of us adults. Michelle Rodriguez, a staff attorney at the National Employment Law Project, explains how criminal background checks impact every single one of us and why she wants to “ban the box”.
And we bring you a Skid Row story of “Love on San Pedro” that is both collaborative and transformative with Ann-Sophie Morrissette from Cornerstone Theater and Cheryl Castillo from the Downtown Women’s Center describes realities for women on the streets.

On Tuesday afternoon at 3 —this is what feminism sounds like!
