June 17 on FM: South Asian immigrants / June Jordan / women of La Via Campesina

Hosted by Valecia Phillips & Sese Abejon. Coming up on Tuesday at 3 PST on Feminist Magazine:
Caritas Doha of Sakhi for South Asian Women talks about her work to help young women who immigrated to the U.S. as children apply for employment authorization under the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Caritas explores the unique vulnerabilities experienced by women and children who are undocumented immigrants and survivors of violence.
[This is an interview from the podcast Dare To Use the F-Word‘ – a project of Barnard College and the Barnard Center for Research on Women, bringing you stories about a new generation of feminists.]
… Then, giving a shoutout to LGBT Pride Month, we pull from The Pacifica Radio Archives, and hear an interview with writer, poet and activist June Jordan by former Feminist Magazine collective member Josy Catoggio.  All about Jordan’s views on feminism, racism and the state of America.  She reads her poem “Postscript for Haruko: On War and Peace” from her book “Haruko/Love Poems.”
… Plus, via Making Contact and produced by the Women Rising Radio Project, we profile women of La Via Campesina, the global peasant movement celebrating 20 years of grassroots activism, for sustainable farming, land rights and social justice.   Guests: Canadian Nettie Wiebe fights to keep seeds in the hands of small farmers. From the US, Dina Hoff takes on climate change and trade agreements. Elizabeth Mpufo of Zimbabwe raises issues facing women. And Japan’s Ayumi Kinezuka shares the effects of the Fukishima nuclear disaster on her organic farm.
THIS Is What Feminism Sounds Like!
